Are some people born bad, or is this something they learn? Can thinking positively make us well? What does having a ‘big ego’ really mean? This course tries to answer these questions, and many others, introducing us to some of the bigger questions about human psychology. You will exploresome early and current theories of what makes us tick, alongside some forms of social behaviour which have the potential to prevent us from ticking if they are not addressed.
