This class is designed for people interested in modern literature, film, music, philosophy and the visual arts, and who want to explore connections between these areas and their own life searches. Both parts of this dialogue are equally important, and can elicit deeper meanings from the works and our own lives. This fall, we’ll continue a year-long exploration of artistic and philosophical attempts to redefine and imagine the spiritual, broadly conceived. The emphasis, as always, will be on personal meanings. Readings will include T.S. Eliot’s “Burnt Norton” from Four Quartets, sections of Albert Camus’ The Myth of Sisyphus. Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
