Seminar in Ethical Values (YR)
Section 11, Fall 18
A joint offering with the program in Medical Humanities, this Seminar in Ethical Values examines memory in professional and personal life. Law, medicine and other professions, like individuals, have complex relationships with time and tradition. What and how we remember (or choose not to) powerfully influences the present and the future. Readings will include Sophocles' play Antigone as well as works by James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Virginia Woolf and Jorge Luis Borges.
