This course offers an up-to-date introduction to social psychology: the scientific study of how we as humans interact with and influence each other. It explores deeper sides of our everyday reality such as how individuals’ seemingly private attitudes and free choices may often be shaped by the social environment, what circumstances might “push our buttons” and get us to discriminate against our fellow human beings, what lead us to decide that someone is attractive or to offer help to them, and how relationships we have could determine whether we would be healthy or sick in the long run. Together we will examine a wide range of interesting perspectives for both their credibility and usefulness.
