Ways of Knowing
This course offers a peek behind the curtain of academic thought, examining how knowledge is created in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Each week we focus on a different discipline, deciphering its assumptions and understanding how its scholars pose questions, conduct research, and advance arguments. In small seminar meetings, students discuss classic works from the discipline and practice its thinking, reading, and writing techniques. Once a week, all seminars gather for a colloquium with a Princeton scholar or scientist, who will reflect on his or her current work in relation to the discipline as a whole.
