Credit Points 3
Availability Murdoch: S1-internal, S1-external, S2-internal, S2-external, Y-external
Teaching Timetables Murdoch S1
Murdoch S2
Description In this unit you will be asked to think differently about reality. Rather than taking reality to be natural or objective, we will treat it as social or subjective. When we think of reality in this way, we start to understand "truth" and "knowledge" in a very different light. After considering reasons to treat reality as social or subjective, we apply this view of reality to topics including: human sexuality, childhood, death, virtual reality, God and the war on terror.
