H257: Get a Life: Having a Life vs. Merely Living in Splash 2013 (Apr. 06, 2013)
In ancient ethics, we find one idea consistently emphasized: that while all animals are capable of living, humans alone are able to really have a life. In this class, we'll look into the nature of this distinction and try to figure out why it's so important to ethical reflection.


H155: What Makes a Community? in Splash 2012 (Mar. 31, 2012)
There must be something which unites the members of a community, something which ties them together. In this class, we'll attempt to figure out what this unifying element is, asking ourselves how a group of disconnected individuals can be transformed into a community. In order to approach this question, we'll discuss the surprising similarities and important differences between the accounts of the creation of the community suggested by two of mankind's greatest thinkers: the ancient philosopher, Plato, and the modern civil rights leader, Martin Luther King.
