In Your Head: Consciousness in Fact, Fiction, and Film - LLC

This course will examine the nature of human consciousness as both a scientific and literary concept.  Texts for the course will come from a range of disciplines and will include scientific articles, works of literature, and films. Throughout the semester, you will learn about the science of consciousness, test the ways conscious humans interact with the world, and discuss how (or whether) literature and films can provide a window into the mind.  Students will participate in occasional joint activities and lectures with the course “Cogito Ergo”.
