In this seminar students will be encouraged to explore ethical issues using literary texts as a starting point. We will discuss and evaluate what constitutes human flourishing. How is community created? How can evil be resisted? What is the nature of forgiveness? What responsibility do humans have toward each other? What is the nature of vocation? At least one class meeting will take place on the beach. We will practice close interpretive reading, writing, and research skills necessary for the study of literature.
