HONOR 364    Honors Seminar: Philosophy of the Martial Arts    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
General Education: CSU Area C2; IGETC Area 3B
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course provides an introduction to the philosophical views that have traditionally been associated with the practice of martial arts and explores the interplay between those views and that practice. It also provides an introduction to those contemporary philosophical issues that arise in the context of present day analytic philosophical reflection on the nature and practice of martial arts. The course thus provides both the opportunity to appreciate the eastern philosophical underpinnings of an activity that has become part of mainstream American Culture and the opportunity to experience the rigorous application of contemporary analytic academic philosophical methodology. Details about the Honors Program can be found in the front of the Catalog and on the CRC website. Enrollment is limited to Honors Program students.
