Many sociologists believe that individuals react to the demands of society. According to one modern psychoanalytic view, it is the other way round: social activities and institutions reflect what is in our minds. This course takes as its key text a work by contemporary psychoanalyst George Frankl who explores how unconscious structures, or myths, became externalised in society as religions, culture and philosophy, which in turn influenced law, politics, work and how we deal with property. The result is a historical study of the development of civilisation and also of its dark side or disintegration which reflects disordered forces within the psyche.
A university-level textbook of approx. 400 pages is required as the main book for the course. Further reading is optional though comprehensive reading lists are given, enabling you to pursue further studies at your leisure.
Method of assessment
Continuous assessment - there is no final exam. Students will be asked to write brief essays after reading certain chapters.
Entry qualifications
No particular qualification is required for entry. However the student should have a high standard of written English and the ability to cope with technical vocabulary and university-standard textbooks. Some previous knowledge of psychology will be an advantage.
