CSIH 3040 - Models of Consciousness


This course explores the process of model building in psychology and human science by examining a spectrum of current models that dominate the study of consciousness, including those from cognitive neuroscience, the classical depth psychologies of Freudian psychoanalysis, humanistic and transpersonal approaches, Jungian psychology, and a selection of conceptions from the classical psychologies of Asia. How to identify the logic, metaphysics, epistemology, ontology, and cosmology of a given model will be a primary focus. What relevance these models of consciousness have for humanistic and transpersonal psychology and human science will also be of concern. Because individuals often attempt a phenomenological integration of everything, based on some fusion of their readings of theoretical writings on the subject with scientific research, personal proclivities, and intuitive norms from clinical experience, attempts at the students’ own synthesis of a more adequate model of consciousness will be encouraged. 3 credit(s)
