HUMBIO 165: Early Roots of Human Behavior

A growing body of evidence suggests that the roots of human behavior are to be found in early childhood. These early behaviors have a direct effect on the quality of a child¿s educational experience. The educational experience, in turn, is a principal determinant of many adult outcomes that affect well-being. This course will explore how early social forces, psychological influences, and biological systems combine to affect human behavior in early childhood, in the educational experience, and throughout the life course.

ILAC 235: Critique of Technology (STS 200L)

Informed citizens living in today's world, and especially in Silicon Valley, should be able to formulate their own, articulate positions about the role of technology in culture. The course gives students the tools to do so. Against the trend towards the thoughtless celebration of all things technological, we will engage in critique in the two senses of the term: as careful study of the cultural implications of technology and as balanced, argumentative criticism. Can technology make life more meaningful, society more fair, people smarter, and the world smaller? Selections by fiction writers, philosophers and thinkers (such as Heidegger and Beller), as well as recent popular works of social commentary, such as You are not a Gadget, The Shallows, 24/7, and Present Shock.
