The study of natural philosophy seeks to explore the cosmos by any means necessary to understand the universe. Some ideas presuppose that change is a reality. Although this may seem obvious, there have been some philosophers who have denied the concept of metamorphosis, such as Plato’s predecessor Parmenides and later Greek philosopher Sextus Empiricus. After the study of the relationship with other branches of Philosophy (especially Metaphysics) students will review the description of the Universe from the Neolithic era to the 21st Century. While the questions of change, becoming, motion will be a central part in this course, other topics explored include: the Aristotelian Hylomorphic theory of the composition of things, the concept of Causality, the activity of the Physical bodies, and a more accurate definition of Time and Place.
