Prerequisite: ENG 102

Recommended for Honors Program Candidates, this interdisciplinary Great Books seminar focuses on a variety of questions that are central to the human condition, such as What is Justice? What is Beauty? and What is Race? The methodology of textual close reading and Socratic discussion is emphasized, including the shared responsibilities of an inquisitive, dialogue-centered learning community and the communication of complex ideas that emerge from the reading of foundational texts. Both professor and students will engage the text through questioning and rigorous discussion.
