New Courses.
Dr. Carl Michel offered new courses for the enrichment of the intellectual life of
the students. He began courses in the history of philosophy, history of civilization, logic,
psychology, and ethics. This broadened the intellectual opportunities for Clarkson students.
His announced aim in the philosophy course was to trace modern doctrines and thoughts
to their sources by investigating old and new philosophic doctrines with regard to psychology,
ethics, cosmology, theology, metaphysics, biology, anthropology, political government and
moral science, and scientific doctrines. In ethics, he traced historically the customs, law and
justice, standards and motives, the factors and forces of moral development; individual and
social views, and ethics in political, economic, and social life.
