Phsychology 1 (Natural Philosophy)

Course Overview

Unlike experimental psychology, this course studies the nature of life, looking at the degrees of life – plant, animal and human – and defining what is proper to each one. We will also look at the powers of living things such as nutrition, growth, self-movement and knowledge of other things and finally human free will.

This course is held on Mondays from 6pm to 7pm.
