High School students: Register now for “What Makes us Human? An Existential Journey amidst Crisis,” held online January 4-23, 2021. https://sce.cornell.edu/precollege/roster/govt-3686
This course is an existential odyssey into the human condition and politics. Are we truly different from animals and machines? What does it mean to “be yourself”? What’s the difference between freedom and liberty? Should we pursue happiness? Why do we yield to fear and anxiety? Is the search for meaning meaningless? Do we live in a post-truth era? What are the roles of morality in our society and politics? Why is God dead, but religion alive? Can we defeat alienation? Is love all we need? How much can, and should, we hope for?

In this course, utilizing edX HOPE (Human Odyssey to Political Existentialism; see https://tinyurl.com/hope44), we will address these questions, and more. In the aftermath of the election, we shall examine a dozen themes, entwining each with critical reflections, both personal and political, amidst current crises, including Covid-19 and identity politics: Human/nature, identity & authenticity, freedom, reflection, happiness, death & dread, meaning, morality, truth & trust, God & religion, alienation & love, and finally-hope.
