FS 014 PZ -What is Human?


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This seminar will examine the ways in which we as a species have identified ourselves as distinct from other animals, machines, and biological creations. Do computers have consciousness? Do clones have souls? Do we think with our heart? Do we have obligations to others? We will explore how people in other eras have defined “humans” and how those distinctions are being challenged by contemporary technology and biological research. Readings range from philosophical and political treatises to science and science fiction.[S. Snowiss, Political Studies, International and Intercultural Studies, Human Biology, and Gender and Feminist Studies]

Prerequisite(s): First-Year Seminars are required for all incoming freshman and do not have prerequisites.

First-Year seminars are not listed on the course schedule. Incoming students will be assigned to a first-year seminar and registered automatically.
