Philosophy and the Science of Human Nature-Open Yale Course

Image

Here is an interesting looking course on philosophy and cognitive science from the Open Yale programme.  The course comprises 26 lectures by Prof. Tamar Szabó Gendler.  As you would expect, the course is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on literature from  philosophy, psychology, behavioral economics, politics and literature.  The course is structured around three intertwined sets of topics: Happiness and Flourishing; Morality and Justice; and Political Legitimacy and Social Structures.  It looks really good, with a fascinating syllabus.  Get your think on.
