Class description

Student learning goals

General method of instruction

This will be a hybrid format, 5 in class meetings, and five online classes.

Recommended preparation

The clarity to see things seen every day but never really seen and to hear things heard every day but never really heard before. The energy to pursue an idea wherever it leads. The vision to see beyond preconceptions and cultural conditioning and so enable departure from traditional bias. A love of reflection and contemplation. A trust of sensitivity and intuition. An enthusiasm for insights and meanings that requires detecting the assumptions that underlie assumptions. A fondness for strategizing. A commitment to search for that elusive thing called truth. A flexibility in generating and using options. To infuse the whole with the moral ideal of compassion and caring.

Class assignments and grading

We will write, read and interact weekly. Projects will emanate from students' own goals.
