PHIL 2298 Community and Culture II (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course is a continuation of the themes developed in Community and Culture I, though participation in the Fall semester is not a requirement for participation in Spring. With an eye toward understanding the connection between culture and community, we will examine various understandings of the nature of community in general, the relationship of culture to its communities, and the nature of life lived in the context of community. Particular focus will be given to the American experience of community. Areas considered will include the historical, political, economic, literary and religious, all with the purpose of understanding the cultural; the goal will be to identify the difficulties of reconciling individual and community life.
