LS 160C / Psychology C162


Philosophy & Values

This course will focus on the evolution and origins of human ethics. We will draw upon several disciplines, or ways of knowing, including evolutionary theory, neuroscience, cultural psychology, and certain strains of philosophical thought (e.g., Buddhism, Taoism, Aristotle) to chart the origins of human benevolence, and how they play out in everyday life.
