Credit points: 03
Year: 2019
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. In examining the relationship between 'truth' and 'knowledge', the nature of time, and the changing conditions in which human identity is experienced, students will encounter different traditions of thought, and develop skills in utilising academic resources, evaluating and analysing complex ideas, and communicating in a range of media.

Learning Outcomes

  • compare and synthesise different traditions of thought and associated ways of knowing;
  • evaluate accuracy and relevance of a range of academic resources;
  • demonstrate engagement with complex ideas using appropriate terms and technology through a range of media;
  • operate independently and collaborate in group activities.
