I Think, Therefore I Spam, or Getting to the Meating Of It All
An integrated, interdisciplinary unit: Anatomy/physiology, World history and English literature classes explore the human nervous system and its connections to the birth of freedom of thought in the Western World and how it has changed our culture. This unit explores the individual as a free thinker and the emphasis the individual has played in Western evolution/development of politics, science and literature. It gives an understanding of the types of thinking which have evolved in the history of mankind. This unit demonstrates its importance by evidencing the increasing self-awareness of human thinking processes and human physiology. This unit will help the student recognize the characteristics of dogma, compare it with personal observation and study. Through experimentation, research, and inquiry, students will question differences between inferences and true observation.
