Dr. Ryan O'Dowd, Chesterton House Senior Scholar


January 26, 2015 at 9:30 PM - 11:30 PM EST


105 Ives Hall

This course is founded on the assumption that people who lived almost three millennia ago are enough like us that their wisdom writings have value for us today.  We seek, therefore, not only to understand their writings but to find modern relevance for their ideas about the good life, death, faith, education and knowledge, value, desire, culture, vocation, selfhood, suffering, politics, ethics, and law.

Students interested in exploring this opportunity are welcome to visit the first class session.


First class: January 26.

Last day to add:  February 10. 

Last day to drop: February 18. 

Last day of class: March 16.

Cost: $200 payable to Chesterton House (If you are on financial aid, we are making this course available at no cost other than a $50 administrative fee.)
