Ancient Wisdom and the Modern Search for Meaning

What is the good life? What can a person truly know? Is there justice in the world? These are some of the fundamental, universal questions of the human condition. This course raises these questions and looks at how the biblical wisdom literature answers them, along with similar writings from elsewhere in the ancient world as well as modern literature and film. As a result of this analysis, students have the opportunity to construct a coherent and viable structure of meaning for their own life journeys.
