About the event
Secular Study Hall will consist of self-paced coursework and lectures via online platforms and participants will meet bi-weekly to share assignments and discuss that week’s topic more in depth with the group. You will also receive a password to unlock the exclusive Study Hall page on our website. There you will have access to our group calendar, private chat room, and drop box for assignment sharing.
The first class we will be taking together is called, “Moralities of Everyday Life” and is taught by Paul Bloom. Paul is the Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science at Yale University. The class will address questions such as; How can we explain kindness and cruelty? Where does our sense of right and wrong come from? Why do people so often disagree about moral issues? This course explores the psychological foundations of our moral lives.
