ADPS 4000 Psychology & the Other:Interdisciplinary Seminar (Fall: 4 )


Course Description

This course is an interdisciplinary course wherein students consider the shape of human subjectivity, experience, and identity from a variety of disciplinary, historical, clinical, and conceptual positions. Oriented around the scholarship and conversation taking place at the Psychology and the Other conference - featuring top thinkers in philosophy, theology, and psychology - this course addresses the many discourses, political imports, phenomenological markers, and philosophical heritages that underlie our understanding of and lived range in human experience. The course will emphasize socio-political and cultural dimensions of human experience, phenomenology of identity (gender, sexuality, self-other constitution), intersubjectivity and transformation/healing, intergenerational transmission of trauma, and psychological/theological/philosophical concepts of self and other relations. NOTE - In addition to the on-campus Saturday meetings, students registered for this course are required to attend the "Psychology and the Other" Conference in October: www.psychologyandtheother.com.
