FEAR

ENG 102 FEAR

The course will focus on the concept of fear from  evolutionary, psychological and sociological perspectives. Under the broad question "Is fear a curse or blessing?", the course intends to cast a critical eye on the concept of fear by trying to answer questions such as: 

  • What is fear? Is it important? Why/why not?
  • Are human beings inherently coded to fear certain stimuli?
  • What are the external factors that frighten people? Are these culturally constructed?
  • Can fear be useful?

 

SAFETY & WELL-BEING

The course will try to look into issues related to the safety and well-being of individuals. This broad topic  may be further narrowed down to issues related to transportation, health, emergencies and infrastructure.
