Exploring Life's Ultimate Questions
"All men and women by nature yearn for knowledge," says Aristotle in the first sentence of his Metaphysics. In this cluster, we will cultivate this yearning for knowledge by exploring some of life's ultimate questions: What is the meaning of life? Is there a God? What is the good or virtuous life? What is justice? We will probe possible answers to these questions in the works of great thinkers and by participating in genuine discussion with our peers. For those of you who are driven by question, this class is for you.
