Animal psychology: Domestic felines

Why your dog dotes on your every word and action and pines for you when you go out whilst your cat just knocks ornaments off shelves purely for the sake of it and suddenly moves into the house down the street uninvited! Cats are one of the most popular pets worldwide and yet they were only domesticated a few thousand years ago (as compared to companion dogs which were domesticated around one hundred and fifty thousand years ago). This means that cats retain a wildness and independence which is in sharp contrast to the dependency on humans that we see in the modern dog. It is perhaps this independence and some would say, aloofness, that is loved and admired by cat lovers all over the world and despised by others.

Psychology: Exploring the Psychologies of Freud, Jung and Others

Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and those that followed them have, in their very different ways, changed the way we think about ourselves, morality, life and love. This course will also look at some of the most influential ideas from Alfred Adler, Eric Erickson, Wilhelm Reich, Viktor Frankl and Erich Fromm. All have influenced our view of human nature, even if we don’t realise it. Expect informed presentations; lively discussions and online; lots of background materials on Canvas, controversy, lively discussion, some outrageous ideas and a touch of humour. This is an introductory course, and no previous experience of Psychology is needed.
