PHIL 5553 Capstone: Poets, Philosophers, and Mapmakers (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

We go through life with mental maps of reality in various degrees, implicit or explicit. A liberal arts education presupposes such a map of the intelligible world. Is it accurate? What does your map of reality look like? How has it changed since freshman year? The goal of the seminar is to help you see what kind of map you implicitly have now and to begin to ask what you want the map to look like ten years after graduation. How do you develop an open rather than closed map?

Instructor(s): Paul McNellis, S.J.

Prerequisites: Completion of Philosophy and Theology core and instructor permission required
