The Quinmester course "The Outer Limits" involves an exploration of unknown worlds, mental and physical, through fiction and nonfiction. Its purpose is to focus attention on the ongoing conquest of the frontiers of the mind, the physical world, and outer space. The subject matter includes identification and investigation of unknown worlds in the physical environment (mountain, ocean, land, and space exploration), and in the frontiers of the mind (imagined worlds of man as seen through science fiction, and unexplained worlds of man as seen through parapsychology). It also involves the comparison of reasons for man's desire to conquer his physical and mental worlds and the prediction of new ways in which man will deal with his physical and mental worlds. Eight pages of resource materials are listed. (CL)
