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.

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers
