FYW-1238 The Way of Wisdom


Explore the world’s “wisdom” traditions as you study the Biblical Wisdom books (Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes) alongside ideas about wisdom from the Ancient Near Eastern traditions as well as in conversation with texts from other world religions. Reflect on the root and purpose of religious wisdom traditions, and consider how these traditions might have enduring relevance for questions such as: Does the world have order and meaning? What would a “successful” and “happy” life look like, and how might we pursue that goal? How should we make sense of suffering and injustice in the created order? 4 credits.
