MLS 556 The Quest for Human Meaning
Who am I? What is my place within the universe? Do human beings find or make meaning in their lives? Is meaning even possible n the face of life's absurdities? If so, what constitutes a meaningful life? This course will explore these and other major questions cross-culturally and from the perspective of different academic disciplines. Authors may include Confucius, Plato, Maimonides, Dante, Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Sartre, Gandhi, Tagore, Bergman, Lagerlof, Woolf, King, Morrison, and Bellah, among others.
