Life Maps: The Search for Meaning in Modern Philosophy and the Arts


Name Email Phone
Norman Leer 608-236-0158

This class is designed for people interested in modern literature, film, music, philosophy and the visual arts, who want to explore connections between these areas and their own life searches. Both parts of the dialogue are equally important. This spring, we’ll begin a year-long exploration of what our films tell us about American society today.

For the spring, we’ll watch Death of a Salesman, Deer Hunter, Places in the Heart, Matewan and O Brother, Where Art Thou? Class members are encouraged to work from their personal experiences as they seem relevant. Members will be asked to come one hour earlier on March 13th for Deer Hunter.
