301 Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities I (3).
An interdisciplinary course that studies the role of worldview during the premodern period to the end of the 19th century. Pertinent works from drama, literature, music, science, philosophy, and theology are studied to gain an understanding of the spirit of the age. Professors from the various disciplines will lead discussion on relevant works to see how the leading thinkers of this age answered the perennial questions of God, man, the world, and how these interrelate. The integration of this knowledge with the Christian world and life view is the ultimate aim of this course. (Fall, odd years)
