HUMA 2301, "Further Readings in Western Culture," resumes the study of foundational Western texts from the fall semester. The course meets for three hours a week to draw on knowledge of ancient literatures, turning to texts dating from the fourteenth century through the twentieth century.
HUMA 2301 acknowledges the enduring influence of the ancient world and describes the ways in which ancient ideas have evolved over the course of the past six centuries. In particular, the course focuses on the process of creation/the creative process; human alienation from the natural world and self-alienation; and the tensions between scientific rationalism (reason) and belief (emotion).
