Expanded Course Description
This is an innovative psychology course on personality, including its fundamental connections to motivation and emotion. Thus, its topic is personality understood broadly. To a very considerable degree, personality patterns are built largely on more enduring motivational and emotional patterns. In addition to providing a solid scientific knowledge-base regarding the subject-matter, the course will help you learn to think more usefully and critically (i.e., carefully) about these core aspects of human behavior -- something useful in psychology and human services professions, but also in many areas of life. More specifically: You can learn to identify patterns in motivation and emotion, key sources or causes of them, their relation to each other and to personality tendencies, and the effect of all these on behavior. Note: This is a group-satisfying course for Social Sciences. It covers a representative cross-section of key issues, perspectives, and modes of analysis employed by scholars working on the subject matter of personality. It addresses classic theories in the field such as those of Freud, behaviorists, and of existential and humanistic psychologists. The course format is primarily a series of talks (i.e., lecture), with discussion and in-class exercises. The course’s exercises-and-discussion component is not obtainable from the class-session slides, nor are important elaborations on the content found in the slides. So, attendance at class sessions is an important component of the experience. The course has extensive readings, and you’re expected to read everything assigned.
