Open Yale Courses: Philosophy and the Science of Human Nature

Open Yale Courses provides a unique opportunity for members of the general public to experience a stimulating classroom environment and learn about a diverse number of issues without stepping foot on the New Haven campus. Philosophy and the Science of Human Nature is one such course that allows interested readers to engage in the thought-provoking subfield of Philosophy, the Philosophy of Science. In this course, Dr. Tamar Szabo Gendler "pairs central texts from Western philosophical tradition (including works by Plato, Aristotle, Epictetus, Hobbes, Kant, Mill, Rawls, and Nozick) with recent findings in cognitive science and related fields." Site visitors can access all 26 of Dr. Gendler's lectures for this course, which each center on one of three key themes: Happiness and Flourishing, Morality and Justice, and Political Legitimacy and Social Structure. A list of the required texts for this course may be found on the course Syllabus.
