Goodness, Evil, Politics, and Change

School of Consciousness and Transformation TSD 7046 3.00

Current political rhetoric seeks to mobilize constituents against "evil" others. In this course, while reflecting on readings related to the diversity of cultural understandings of morality, students critically explore how social psychology and depth psychology each frame good and evil. Through this transdisciplinary approach, students critically assess their own relationship to a good/evil duality and their susceptibility to ideological and political rhetoric that dehumanizes the other and constructs the enemy.
