Course Name: Cognition, Transformation and Lives

Course abstract

This course addresses anyone who is interested in change , not the temporary change ,but transformation at a deeper, sustained level, whether individual or collective. The course is structured to provide a basic knowledge of Psychology and Neuroscience before using a narrative biography of Mahatma Gandhi to elucidate the process of transformation. It does not look at Mahatma Gandhi’s politics rather at the Man who left behind a model of transformation. We posit it in a scientific analysis here.
