This was a great course with one exception. It traces the history of peoples attitudes to cultural outliers and what kind of person was considered deviant in that cultural context. The only bad thing about the course is the last lecture, where Wolpe goes completely pomo and throws out science along with cultural constructs about deviance. While I agree that "deviance" is a great place to see cultural relativism and a certain degree of post-modernism is good for this kind of analysis, it always irritates me when the post-modernists take things to extremes and refuse to make statements about anything at all.
