0811. Asian Behavior & Thought: Four Asian Models Shaping Your Action (3 s.h.) Core: IN.

(Formerly: GE-HUMB 1027.)

We incessantly engage ourselves in doing things. We are beings-at-doing. We define ourselves by the kind of actions we perform. How we act or conduct ourselves is shaped by the kind of self we construct for ourselves. And that self is shaped by the society into which we happen to be born. Self-identity, which is socially and culturally constructed by our experiences and interactions with others, carries a personal as well as an interpersonal meaning. Learn the four Asian paradigmatic cases of self-identity and examine your self in light of them.

Note: This General Education `Human Behavior` pilot course fulfills the Core Individual & Society (IN) requirement.
