IES 101 - Self and Identity

William James' construct of the self-the reflective capacity of humans to be I and me, subject and object, knower and known-provides an entry point for this exploration of a unifying construct in psychology, sociology, and other behavioral and social sciences. Students will examine the historical underpinnings of the contemporary notion of the self, the reciprocal relationship between the self and society, and identity theory. Some sections may be restricted to IES majors and IES minors only. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
