What does it mean to be human?  How do different theories of what it means to be human affect the way that we think of ourselves, our relationship to the world and our relationship to God?  In this course, we discuss various conceptions of human nature, including dualism, hylomorphism, evolutionary accounts and religious understandings.  The objective of the course is understanding of the various theories of human nature, and to be able to engage in the debate about what it is that we are and how we engage with the world.  The course is evaluated through two shorter papers (worth 15 and 25%), one long paper (worth 45%) and participation (15%).
