Four Tuesdays

This course will examine the peculiar journey we call life from a number of differing angles. What is Comedy, and why do we laugh? What is a Jungian perspective on the problem of evil? How does one move from callow youth to wisdom? Of what should we be mindful regarding aging and mortality? These are questions that prompt one to more conscious living.
