Description: This course explores multiple theories of human nature and the prioritizing of values, which can turn into complex forms of religion, economics, philosophy, and/or politics. Studying the connection between our values and our behavior leads us to the study of political formations, ethical systems, aesthetic attitudes, religion, and familial ties. Each of us views our social systems differently, and a portion of this class will involve considering our own values as they related to human nature. Letter grade only.
Prerequisite: Admission to a Personalized Learning program
