Psychologists, sociologists and historians have taken different views of what makes thinking productive of new insights or repetitive of conventional attitudes. In this course we read four fundamental works about thinking, with special attention to the psychological, educational, social and historical conditions in which problems are discovered and resolved, programs are formulated and enacted, and art works are conceived and evaluated.

Open to: University undergraduate degree students, freshmen and sophomores only. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture.
