HIST 138 PZ -Seeking Human Nature: The History and Science of Innateness.


Institution: Pitzer

Description: “Human nature” has long been invoked to understand and justify our behaviors. After the advent of Darwinian evolution and Mendel’s gene theory, however, the notion of “instinct” gained authority, reshaping categories like “race” and “nature.” We will track that shift and examine its effects on political economy and social policy.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.

Cross-listing: PSYC 138 PZ
