BETH 706 - 201 Great Books Seminar See Details * *
Description of course Great Books Seminar : CRN: 10176
Unique in the nation, this elective course uses selected writings of great classic and contemporary thinkers as the starting point for an intensive, focused discussion with peers. You'll discuss the enduring ideas and ideals of world civilization, the problems and opportunities of today and the issues to be faced in the years ahead. In a sense, the readings function as case studies in leadership and leadership values. Readings are arranged around such universal human concerns as justice, freedom, economic equity, community, leadership and democracy. Discussion and debate are spirited as students get to know one another in a retreat-like environment during this six-day (1pm Sunday-5pm Friday) residential seminar at the UST Gainey Center in Owatonna, MN. A mandatory orientation class (in May for summer term and in November for J-term) and required closure session (in Sept for summer term and in February for J-term) will be held on the Minneapolis campus. For more information and specific dates, times, and fees, visit the OCB Ethics website at: http://www.stthomas.edu/business/about/ethics/ and click on the Great Books Seminar link. -- Prerequisite: Standard core courses
