HNSM 465 - Learning the Hard Way: Know Yourself to Know the World

3 hours
Antigone, Job, King Lear and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight share a common theme of what disasters that having power without wisdom can bring; ignorance, especially of one’s self, can wreak havoc in a world where human suffering is somehow connected to our understanding of human agency and divine power. This semester will be devoted to exploring ways of achieving wisdom and self-knowledge, as well as, a discussion of how our society constructs the concepts of both human and divine power and wisdom.
