The following topics were discussed, each in a separate session: Knowledge, Sources of knowledge, Justification and Foundationalism, Self-evident basic beliefs justifying other non-basic beliefs, Truth and criteria of truth, Belief, Empiricism, Rationalism, Scepticism and Contextualism.

The turnout was high. It exceeded more than a hundred in some sessions. Questions and comments by the audience added to the richness of the course.
