Exo111 - Xenomethodology

Towards a methodological framework for xenological and exopolitical sciences

What students have to say

This class results in a hyper-growth and development of analytical skills and critical thinking skills. I think this is one of those rare courses that actually makes you smarter!

Course Description

This course strives to provide the foundation for a methodological framework for xenological and exopolitical studies. To do so, it largely takes the human sciences as a starting point. The course starts off with basic concepts like truth, fact, evidence, and knowledge. It then gives a short introduction to how to reason properly by studying the basics of logic. In the third part of the course, we analyze existing methodologies, mainly within the human sciences, to see how they can be useful and where they preĀ­sent challenges that must be overcome.

What students have to say

The most important thing I have learned in this course is really how to carry out a serious investigation with arguments and above all with well-defined schemes and procedures.  I learned to take into account very important aspects that perhaps I had not considered before.
Research in the field of xenological sciences is a very exciting and serious subject, and I was able to understand that it is possible to use the research methods and techniques that we use as humans, adapting them to the needs of the xenological subject that we are studying, obtaining useful results.
