This course explores the major paradigms of personality theory through the use of lectures, discussions, and case studies. Current research is examined and models of personality development are discussed as they relate to current clinical practices. Perspectives will include biological and trait; psychoanalysis, along with other Neo-Freudian perspectives; feminist; socialbehavioral; and humanistic/holistic.
In this course students will examine three historical East Indian texts on the nature of consciousness, mind and psychology: Samkhya’s philosophy, The Taittreya Upanishads and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. We will critically explore how the interpretation of these historical texts is shaped by academics, those with political agendas, gurus, and the writers of popular New Age texts. We will also explore the ideas presented within these texts within our own lives, reflecting on the process by which we make meaning. This course is primarily lecture and discussion based.
