How is it that we come to know things? How do we process this information to know our own way of thinking and to come to terms with an external world? This course will explore several different methods of Western psychology that have developed throughout the twentieth century that explore how the mind works in processing the stimulation from the external world and how this processing is framed by the cultural and social principles and values that inform the subject how to process, understand, and in the end conditions us to think in the manner that we do. Some methodologies we will explore: American Pragmatism, Psychoanalysis, Analytic Psychology and Gestalt Theory. In conjunction with these methodologies, in the latter part of the course we will take up explore how these meanings and values inform our understanding of gender and gender identities.
