Better by Science?

This course will be taught by Todd Freeberg, an associate adjunct professor in psychology. Professor Freeberg’s research interests center on animal behavior and animal communication. Class will be held once a week on Wednesdays from 11:15-12:05.

Course description:

Humanity has benefited enormously from scientific advances – science has made us physically better. Has science also made us better morally? We will examine this question by reading and discussing Michael Shermer’s 2015 book, “The Moral Arc: How Science Makes Us Better People.” Our goal will be to increase our understanding of the ability of scientific thinking to make a better and more just world.
