Event Description:
DESCRIPTION: From ancient times, acts of courage and people of courage have been praised. At the same time, when we observe our own environments, courage sometimes seems to be in short supply. Probably everyone agrees that a society is benefited by courage. Certainly children benefit from lessons about courageous people. But what is courage? How is it different from, say, plucky rashness? In this course, well look at brief excerpts from classic sources--Gilgamesh, Aristotle, Sophocles, the books of Esther and Daniel, Shakespeare--with the goal of bringing the topic home to our own world--to thinking about the little acts of courage a society needs it if its going to flourish.
