Four Perspectives

Course Number: HUM 110
Credits: 5
Hours per Quarter: 50

Lecture Hours:50


Description
Students will explore four significant perspectives in the history of ideas. Students will learn about how the world has changed in response to the ideas and life examples of Pythagoras, Galileo, the Buddha, and Jesus Christ. Readings and videos, as well as photos, poetry, paintings, music, and other art forms are used to find out about 1) the Pythagorean idea of Nature as governed by number, of deep order in the universe; 2) Galileo's contribution to the methods of modern science and experimental inquiry; 3) the basic teachings of the Buddha, especially mindfulness; 4) Christian love as a challenging, creative, and active way of life. In the Introduction section, we will orient the Four Perspectives in the history of humankind, and in the Conclusion section, we will examine common and disparate elements of the Four Perspectives.
