Tuesdays, September 5 – October 10 (six weeks)

4:15 – 5:30 pm

Moderated Discussion 

*This course is limited to 20 participants.

 

This is a guided discussion course where we will look at six topics in six weeks: love, equality, fidelity, art, science, and literature. There is a two-story homework assignment provided for each week. The stories offer readings that engage with each other in a variety of ways, but are always closely related to some idea or concern they have in common. They often conflict with each other but they do so in a way that promotes, rather than inhibits, productive debate. Class time will be devoted to a discussion of the week’s topic based on the readings. 

 

JANE HUKILL (ex-librarian) and DICK HAWKINS (ex-engineer) are both past Chairs of WC-ALL and have facilitated Great Books discussion courses for more than a decade.
