Who are we? What are we? Why are we here? These must be three of the oldest questions known to man.  But despite millennia of thought and reasoning, the answers can still seem elusive. Psychology, modelling itself on the physical sciences, concentrates on the empirical study of human beings, neglecting the spiritual and universal aspects of the self. This course attempts to guide you through the psychological theories of personal identity towards a deeper understanding of self and consciousness.
