    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There is something so exquisite about learning how to understand the human self. The way we live and how we function is something I never truly thought about because it seems so natural. This course challenged me to think beyond habit and to look deeply into the decisions I make and why. Things as simple as watching a sunset became more complicated because I wanted to understand what part of myself made me love them so much.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that their are multiple selves, and we are still discovering more. Its a philosophy course so nothing is set in stone, topics are made to be arguable. There is so much of the self that is not conscious which implies that some decisions we make or how we act, the thought process is so small that we barely even know it happens. The things I learned in this class will continue to follow me and I look forward to exploring some of the topics more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every book from start to finish and participate in class. There are no wrong answers and chances are if you have an opinion that has not been voiced, someone else is feeling the same way but are unsure of how to present their idea. Also pay attention to other students opinions, they will help you form a solid thesis and understanding for your own being.
