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 fall and spring we’ll be working from an anthology, The Twentieth Century in Poetry, edited by Michael Hulse and Simon Ray. We’ll discuss poets and their poems in relation to historical events and conditions. Members are encouraged to share their own relevant memories and experiences
