Courses in the Great Books Program at St. Thomas University are team-taught, discussion-based, and organized around a theme. Here are some syllabi representative of my recent teaching.
Great Books 2206: Human Nature and Technology
A course asking: what is nature? how do humans relate to nature? what happens when humans combine--or conflate-- art (techne) with logos? Writers covered include: Aristotle, Lucretius, Bacon, Swift, Shelley, Heidegger, Arendt, Lorde, and Stoppard.
