Description from course catalog:
360.133 | GREAT BOOKS: WESTERN TRADITION OR THE HUMANITIES: A TRADITION OF CLASSICS
Great Books explores some of the greatest works of the literary and philosophical tradition in Europe and the Americas. In lectures and panel sessions, professors from several academic disciplines introduce texts and then lead further discussion in small group sessions. Where appropriate, as in the Faust legend, Peabody resources allow comparison of the literary text and its operatic counterparts. Close reading and intensive writing instruction are hallmarks of Great Books at Hopkins, along with a reading list that begins with Homer’s Odyssey and continues to the modern period, varying each term based on faculty expertise.
Cross-listed with the Classics, Humanities Center, Music, Philosophy, and German and Romance Languages & Literatures.
