Life Worth Living, HUMS 411b

Meeting Time: 

Course Description:

The Life Worth Living Program is an effort to revive critical discussion in universities and the broader culture about the most important question of our lives: What is a life worth living?

HUMS 411, “Life Worth Living,” draws upon a range of philosophical and religious traditions to help students develop habits of reflection that will equip them for the life-long process of discerning the good life. In addition to seminar readings from the foundational texts of each tradition, the course engages guest practitioners of the various religious traditions examined and offers a weekend retreat that invites students to reflect on their own worldview and approach to the questions under consideration. Since the inaugural seminar in 2014, the class has been taught by Miroslav Volf, Ryan Mc-Annally-Linz, Matt Croasmun, Angela Gorrell, and Drew Collins.
