D. Dunning.

An enduring task in psychological inquiry has been to survey the ways in which a person’s self-image influences emotion, thought, and action. What is self-esteem, and is it a good or a bad thing? How do concerns over self-image motivate people? Do people really know themselves accurately? How does a person’s sense of self develop, and does it differ across cultures? Students will be introduced to these and other topics by reading original research articles, and should expect to take part in class discussions of the issues raised.
