Freshman Seminar: The Greeks and Their Emotions
AS.040.109 (01)

This seminar is meant as an introduction to the study of ancient emotions, with a particular emphasis on how the ancient Greeks conceptualized, portrayed and lived their emotions through linguistic, literary and artistic expression. After an analysis of how the ancient Greek emotional experience differs from our own, we shall focus on the phenomenon of emotion as deeply rooted in the physical body, and in light of this we will contemplate (and question) its universality. You will also learn how to research and write a paper. Texts will be read in translation. No knowledge of ancient Greek required.

Philosophy & Science: An Introduction to Both
AS.150.136 (01)

Philosophers and scientists raise important questions about the nature of the physical world, the mental world, the relationship between them, and the right methods to use in their investigations of these worlds. The answers they present are very different. Scientists are usually empiricists, and want to answer questions by experiment and observation. Philosophers don’t want to do this, but defend their views a priori. Why? Can both be right? Readings will present philosophical and scientific views about the world and our knowledge of it. They will include selections from major historical and contemporary figures in philosophy and science. The course has no prerequisites in philosophy or science.

Freshman Seminar:The Costs of Care: Writing About Illness in America
AS.145.105 (01)

Health care can be expensive for those who receive it and those who provide it. In the United States, patients go into debt while doctors suffer from burnout and nurses rush through understaffed wards. This freshman seminar brings together perspectives from history, the social sciences, and literature to put a human face on the American health care debate. Alongside policy and research, we read poetry, memoirs, graphic novels, and essays. Major texts include Anne Boyer on breast cancer, Esmé Weijun Wang on mental illness, and Damon Tweedy on racial bias. We’ll examine past and present conflicts over the government's role in healthcare access, as well as alternative models of care deployed by people in marginalized groups. Understanding individual and group encounters with the medical system will inform our discussions about what changes are needed to support both patients and practitioners.

Freshman Seminar: Heart Matters
AS.145.117 (01)

To the human imagination, the heart is more than a muscle and thumping pump keeping us alive. From the Renaissance to the present, writers have helped us make sense of our bodies, in health and in illness or pain. Our aim will be to trace the historical, cultural and subjective meanings our minds have given to this “sublime engine.” Our materials will involve a constellation of attentive readings of a literature involving poems, modern fiction as well as recent scientific prose.

Philosophy of Mind
AS.150.245 (02)

Our minds are often thought to be exhaustively and intimately known to us. Despite this philosophers deeply disagree about the natures of the mental states and events which make up our minds. And there is equally little agreement as to what makes such states and events count as mental in the first place. This course will investigate the nature of different aspects of mind and their interrelations. Students will explore debates and puzzles about the nature of perception, memory, imagination, dreaming, pain and bodily sensation, emotion, action, volition and those states commonly classed as propositional attitudes: knowledge, belief, desire and intention. This will put us in a position to ask what if anything unifies such phenomena as mental.
