課程概述

Why are we able to put ourselves into someone else’s shoes? Is it really possible that we put aside our immediate interests and benefits just for the survival and wellbeing of another (human) being? In light of notions of cooperation and reciprocity cherished among anthropologists, primatologists and neuropsychologists (in bridging animals and humans; nature and culture), this course explores the value of our genuinely altruistic instincts in our life and work. It engages with several issues: (1) how we can extend our sympathetic and empathetic attitude of working to things, stories and characters that either disgust us or fail to persuade us on the first encounters; (2) how our emotions and agent-specific traits may enable us to achieve logical reasoning in our interpretations; (3) how we may widen our horizons so as to regain connections or partnerships with oddities, ambiguities and monstrosities. 

課程目標
This course guides students to reflect on the following issues: (1) how we can improve our approach to art, nature and culture; (2) how we can apply semiotic thinking while working out tasks of all kinds. 
課程要求
Students are required to (1) preview contents for each week; (2) participate rigorously in discussions; (3) keep reading journals; (4) lead peer discussions of certain topics.
