ANTHR 3476 - Anthropology and Friends: Philosophy and Psychology

(HB) (ETM-AS, SBA-AS, SCD-AS)      
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ANTHR 6476 .

M. Fiskesjö.

Anthropology provides a unique and powerful perspective on the world and especially on ourselves, as humans. Our closest sister-disciplines, philosophy and psychology, as well as psychoanalysis, are also engaged in the same quest to understand our world and ourselves, and have generated powerful insights that anthropology cannot overlook. How can we build a philosophically and psychologically aware anthropology? Focusing on key questions such as our perception of reality, our relations to non-human animals, and the psychological dimensions of identity and power, this course introduces areas where we can learn from each other through an interdisciplinary dialogue carried out in a sympathetic yet critical spirit.
