HNRS 105

Memory and Mortality

Prerequisites: Open to first-year Honors students and permission of instructor. This is a First-year Honors Inquiry course. Part of what it means to be human is to be aware of your mortality - to know that one day you will die. What should such an encounter with death motivate in us? How should we think about ourselves as existing in time? In a seminar format, we will engage these questions by reading various texts in philosophy and literature.
