Year: 2020
Student Contribution Band: Band 1
Administered by: College of Arts, Society & Education

Time, Truth and the Human Condition is a level 1 core subject in the Bachelor of Arts which investigates ideas of 'truth' and 'ways of knowing' as they develop in the contexts of cultures, times and places, both historical and contemporary, and through a range of perspectives on humanity, and with some emphasis on the experiences of the peoples of the tropical world.
