This spring we continue The Great Courses’ “Questions of Value,” presented by Professor Patrick Grim, PhD, State University of New York, Stony Brook. We will look at the values we hold dear and how we should live. Topics include Lives to Envy, Lives to Admire; Life’s Priorities; The Cash Value of a Life; How do We Know Right From Wrong; Better Off Dead; Choice and Chance; Thoughts on Religion and Values; Free Will and Determinism; Cultures and Values: Hopi, Navajo, and IK; and A Picture of Justice, among others. “The unexamined life is not worth living” - Socrates. Join us in this study and keep your mind active.
