Instructor: Larry West
Topics of current social philosophical and political issues will be considered, with civility, in a structured environment which allows each member of the class an opportunity to actively participate in the dialogue. The purpose of meaningful conversation is to come to an understanding of the other not to determine if they are good, bad, right or wrong. It requires deep reflection and the ability to disagree with others while still respecting their sincerity and decency. Members will custom design the course by choosing the topics and identifying questions to be considered.
