Instructor: James Hollis, PhD
What can we draw upon in these days of change, conflict, and profound ambiguity? In his book Where Shall Wisdom Be Found?, Harold Bloom draws upon the Hebraic and Christian sages, the Greeks, Cervantes and Shakespeare, Montaigne and Bacon, Goethe, Nietzsche, Freud, Proust and others for wisdom that continues to illumine our common condition, our continuity with our ancestors, and our summons to greater reflection, courage, and discernment. These essays summon us to personal consideration and to conversation around what matters most in the conduct of our lives.
