Course Description:

This course examines a variety of interpretations of the human situation, drawn from three disciplines: the love of wisdom (philosophy), the science of mind and behavior (psychology), and applied theology (religion). Topics pertaining to the human situation to be considered in this course include abnormal behavior, change, consciousness, death, free will, gender differences, heroism, human needs, humor, intelligence, life’s meaning, love, the mind-body problem, metaphysics, motivation, personality, sex, and virtues. The course is subdivided into two aspects of the human situation: (1) Among living things, what makes human beings constitutionally unique? (2) What are the contextual factors that affect an individual human being’s situation? The first question is concerned with the characteristics that all human beings share. The second question is concerned with the influences of time and place on an individual’s feeling, thinking, and behaving. These questions constitute a current that will run beneath the surface of every topic to be considered in this course.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
