New Online Course:
In Defense of Civilization
This eight part video course considers two powerful conflicting tendencies within the human psyche–the impulse toward maintaining peaceful, civilized relationships and the impulse that tends toward controversy and aggression.
The attributes of the ancient Greek mythological god of war, Ares, and the goddess of civilization, Athena, will be the starting point for exploration.
The eight videos and the varied supplemental materials in this self-paced course
The videos and the supplemental materials reveal how these archetypal themes are lived out daily all around us and within us, allow us to reflect on the depth of difficulty involved in creating a civilized way of life, and offer time-tested strategies for our own.
