UNCP 5560 Capstone: Seeing, Loving, Serving (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

The capacities to love and to know are linked with the ability to see, and these capacities lie at the heart of a Jesuit education. The critic John Berger states that we only see what we look at, looking is an act of choice. This course will examine the link between seeing oneself and others properly and becoming men and women for others. Drawing on texts in philosophy, theology, and literature, students will examine the forces that have shaped their vision and reflect on how they can take the perspectives gained at Boston College into future relationships and careers.
