In this class we will discuss some key ideas in psychology. We will focus on topics and questions that should be relevant and useful to everyone and that stimulate interesting discussions.
Each class will be based around an article from the popular blog 'Barking Up The Wrong Tree' (pre-reading will be helpful but not essential). We will discuss the main ideas from each article and whether we agree or disagree with them. I will teach you about relevant psychological studies in the area, and we'll talk about how the ideas discussed relate to current news and events.
