Inhoud
The question of which psychological processes are conscious and which are not has fascinated and challenged researchers for centuries. The mystery of consciousness has even been labelled as the “the last frontier of science.” In this core theme, we will discuss various psychological processes, such as free will, subjective experience, states of consciousness, mind or matter, smart or stupid unconscious, and attributing consciousness to others. The course will focus not only on various unconscious processes and the importance of the unconscious, but also on psychological processes that involve consciousness and the modern perspectives on what consciousness really is. These topics will be approached from a psychological, philosophical, and neurological perspective.

Links to the SDGs:
This course does not connect to a specific Sustainable Development Goal, yet, it will provide answers to the question why people often struggle to take action for a more sustainable future. Furthermore, the following key competences for sustainable development will be promoted: Competence for cooperation in heterogeneous groups, competence for critical thinking, competence for handling of complexity.
