Seminar in Ethical Values (YR)
A joint offering with the program in Medical Humanities, this seminar in ethical values examines the rupture and aftermath of war, illness, loss, and other traumas. How do individuals and cultures react to, come to terms with, and memorialize life-changing events? What makes people--individuals, communities, nations--resilient or fragile? How do the arts help us bridge the chasm between Before and After? Readings will include Sophocles’ Ajax, Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, and When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Enrollment is limited to six law students and six medical students.
