One Day at UBC: Taking Uncertainty Seriously - The Emergence of Modern Philosophy

Life is full of uncertainties. Does life have meaning? If so, what might that meaning be? How should we live our lives, and what happens after death? We are uncertain about love and hate, and about God and religion. Explore four major philosophers who sought to come to grips with this uncertainty: Descartes, Spinoza, Hume and Kant.  

Anders Kraal, PhD, has been a philosophy instructor at UBC since 2015. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral student at the University of Calgary and a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the University of Notre Dame. His research and teaching focuses on early modern philosophy (especially Hume and Kant), and he also has a strong interest in Kierkegaard, existentialism and the problem of evil.
