Adjunct Lecturer(s) of Philosophy
The Department of Philosophy is seeking Adjunct Lecturer(s) for spring 2014 for PHL1000: Introduction to Philosophy.
A first course in philosophy focusing on classic questions that have stirred the perennial human quest for wisdom. We will explore such questions as: Are humans free or determined? How do the mind and body interact? Is ethics just relative to each person or society? Should there be any limits to the political freedom of citizens? Does God exist? The course will introduce students to the methods and culture of philosophy: sympathetic understanding, critical analysis, fair argumentation, and a persistent desire to know the truth whatever it is. The focus and questions covered will be determined by each instructor. Three hours a week.
Classes begin on January 21, 2014, with finals ending May 9, 2014.
Ph.D. preferred, though ABD candidates will be considered. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the positions are filled.
Please submit vita, letter describing teaching interest, syllabi, and/or other evidence of teaching ability to Dr. Arthur Ledoux, Chair, Philosophy Department, Merrimack College, 315 Turnpike Street, North Andover, MA 01845 (e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org).
