PsychologyPSYC 137 Mind, Body, and World

Psychologists primarily view the mind as being separate from the body, and the body as being separate from the external world. This course questions this widely held position and explores the way that minds arise from individuals' bodily interactions with others and the world around them. Particular attention is paid to the role of human embodiment in language use and everyday cognition.


Prerequisite(s): PSYC 100 and psychology and cognitive science majors; or linguistics, philosophy, or anthropology majors.
