Thank you for supporting us! Overall, I didn't learn very much from this class that I didn't already know. This is an amazing class! If you are a Sociology student, however, you may find that this class is very worth your while. Worth taking and very easy though. His principle fields of study have been sociology, philosophy, anthropology and intellectual history. For Sociology of Death in particular, we had 3 papers and 3 main assignments. Very kind man and wants you to see the world through a different perspective.
This class changed my life thanks the Barney I love Dr. If you're going to take Death, Self and Society or one of his other classes, don't go into it focusing on what grade you will get, that will ruin the experience for you. He shows movies and it is a lot of peer interaction. Bernard McGrane did his undergraduate work at Fairfield University and Die Freie Universitat Berlin, and received his PhD from New York University. Put your soul in it.
The course is titled Ancient Wisdom and Modern Madness—Mind, Self and Society in Tibetan Buddhism. How would you like to live your life differently after reading this? The hegemonic assumption is that happiness simply comes with those values. The books were interesting for the most part and the papers were really easy. This includes, but is not limited to: navigation, video, image galleries, etc. Great professor, really knows what he's doing. What would be a message you would like to share with the rest of your classmates who don't have the privilege of being in our class? However, You will start to hate the class after a while because he is so boring. I totally recommend the class.
He rarely talked about the readings in class and sometimes what he talked about in class didn't even relate to the readings. Lots of reading, but the reading is interesting. It was very interesting, and helped to give you a new perspective on society. I'll agree this class is an easy A, but if that's the most you get out of it you'll miss the entire point. I liked the class, though I was slightly disturbed at the picture of society I was painted.
It will help you more than you can imagine in life and in the class. You will be engaged very much in your material and will examine and must consider the opinions and viewpoints he offers throughout the course. Put some work into it, and you'll definitely get something out of the class. Everyone should a Bernard class before they graduate. He spoke of his relatives, many generations back on both sides of his family, who his sisters, brothers, and children married, his relationship with his aunts and uncles, and then the birds, fish and animals, the trees, rivers, lakes.
The assignments aren't that bad, and he really encourages creativity. But as the quarter went on, his lectures seemed less interesting and less worthwhile to attend. All participants and volunteer staff must check in at our Guest Registration house. McGrane is a horrible Professor. He does a writing practice everyday.
We must be doing at all times; it is valuing personal achievement, time, work, competition, materialism and success. He has a passion for teaching and writing. The last point about work and identity reminds me of how Americans get acquainted with one another. Really cares about content and how it relates to the overall theme. The sixth person was an Ojibway Native American who introduced himself first by naming his tribe and family lineage and then describing in specific detail the land in which he and his tribe lived.
