Issues divide; ideas unite. The purpose of this three-week course is to examine a few of the great ideas that are foundational to western culture and examine seven great ideas from western culture: knowledge, goodness, self-control, love, experience, attention and nature. We will look briefly at the history of these ideas in philosophical works and at their relevance today. Optional reading list: "Plato Apology," Plato "Republic," Epictetus, "The Handbook, Augustine Confessions", Ralph Waldo Emerson "Experience", Simone Weil "Waiting for God," or Aldo Leopold "A Sand County Almanac."
 
Presenter: Richard Kyte, Director, D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership/Professor of Philosophy, Viterbo University.
