LAR 101 - Introduction to the Humanities

Credits 3
Lecture / 3 hours per week
Introduction to the humanities, through an exploration of Moral Philosophy and Literature. Literature provides us with a lens through which we may experience different worlds, explore ideas, and contemplate the meaning of our lives. Philosophy asks us to examine critically our moral principles, to uncover the foundations of morality and to give us a rationale for our judgments of right and wrong. Together, these two subjects reveal the power of the humanities to help us live an examined life. The course will be supplemented by workshops in writing and public speaking. For students enrolled in the Clemente Program only.
