Normality & Abnormality with Dr. Allan Horwitz
 
04:32
Human conceptions of normality and abnormality pervade social life, shaping expectations about physical appearance, eating habits, sexuality, gender, mental illness, and happiness, among other things. Individuals use ideas about what is normal and abnormal to judge and modify their own behavior. And, so does society. But, what is normal? How do we know? And, is normal something worth being? Do definitions of normality stem from people's own experiences, from science, from social definitions, or from universal standards of morality or human nature? What does normal mean in different cultures and historical eras? To what extent is it possible to change deviations from normal and is it desirable to do so? Who decides? This course is particularly recommended for students who intend to pursue majors or minors in anthropology, various area studies, business, criminal justice, history, life sciences or premedicine, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, women's and gender studies, and studies of race and ethnicity. This course carries credit toward the major and minor in sociology. Normality and Abnormality can be used to meet the SAS Core Curriculum goals in 21st Century Challenges [21C], Social Analysis [SCL], and Writing and Communication [WCd]. For students entering before fall 2011, it can be used to fulfill the SAS interdisciplinary and diversity requirements. For more information visit: http://sas.rutgers.edu/signature

Dr. George McGhee - The Geometry of Evolution
 
05:42
Dr. George McGhee discusses the concept of adaptive landscape in evolution as well as a spatial approach to natural selection. Dr. McGhee's work in the field of paleontology is concentrated on the analysis of ancient ecosystems, and the evolution of life through time within this ecological context. His research has involved both the empirical analysis of Late Devonian marine ecosystems, and the theoretical consideration of the ecology of multispecies evolution and extinction patterns. He has been involved in testing various hypotheses of mass extinction: the ecology of massive ecosystem collapse. These hypotheses have included the hypothesis that global ecosystem collapse can be triggered by extraterrestrial causes (chiefly, asteroidal impact).

Human Nature and Human Diversity with Stephen Stich
 
04:52
In an era of globalization everybody talks about diversity, but how much do you actually know about human nature and human diversity? Why is there so much diversity in sex and gender, race, diet, morality and norms, political views, religious beliefs, and cognition, perceptions, and emotions? Is this just human nature? Are there any universals in human nature? What explanations are offered by evolutionary psychology; environmental variability and cultural materialism; gene-culture co-evolution and the tribal instincts hypothesis; and social construction theories? Do cognitive and perceptual diversity create impenetrable barriers between people? How should we respond to human diversity and the moral controversies that specific diversities generate? Should we respond from a position of moral objectivity, cultural relativism, or moral skepticism? What is the role of reason, emotion, and intuition in moral judgment? This course is particularly recommended for students who intend to pursue majors or minors in area studies, languages, Anthropology, Art History, Biological Sciences, Cognitive Science, Communication, Comparative Literature, Criminal Justice, English, History, Philosophy Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Women's and Gender Studies.

Genetics, Evolution, and Human Health with Terry McGuire
 
03:08
Why do humans get sick? Why are diabetes and obesity on the rise? Why have cancer and cardiovascular diseases become so prevalent? Is there a mismatch between the environments in which we evolved and environments in which we now live? Why did cholera, measles, mumps, whooping cough, and malaria become epidemic diseases? Why has evolution failed to make us immune to disease? Based in cutting-edge genetic and evolutionary biology research conducted at Rutgers, "Genetics, Evolution, and Human Health" explores what science can tell us about what it means to be human and why humans get sick. How can genetics be used and misused? What social, political, environmental, and medical changes would be required to improve human health in the 21st century? This course is particularly recommended for students who intend to pursue majors or minors in anthropology, criminal justice, ecology, geography, history, philosophy, political science, psychology, public health, public policy, and sociology and it is of interest to students in the biological sciences and chemistry.

After the events of September 11, 2001, that book became a New York Times bestseller.

How are our individual and societal decisions about what to eat expressive of aesthetic, moral, cultural, and religious values? What's the moral (and policy) significance of particular cultural culinary tradi- tions, and of the importance of cultural group membership to individual well-being? What choices should we as individuals make and what actions should we as a society take to influence how our food is grown, processed, marketed, sold, and consumed?
