Online Video Course: In Defense of Civilization
In this eight-part video course, Glenda Taylor challenges us to look at our current world situation in the light of ancient wisdom—the Greek myths of Ares, the god of war, and Athena, the defender of civilization.
Two powerful conflicting tendencies within the human psyche are examined in the course–the impulse that tends toward controversy and aggression, or the impulse toward maintaining peaceful and civilized relationships.
Lessons include eight videos in which viewers will encounter commentary by ancient and modern interpreters of these archetypal motifs, ventures into history and psychology, and hundreds of images created by the finest artists of all times, all helping to deepen our experience.
Each video is followed by supplementary material, including commentary by people like James Hillman, Plato, Edith Hamilton, Hesiod, Joseph Campbell and others, as well as a look at these issues through the lenses of other cultures’ myths, questions and suggestions for reflection or discussion, an opportunity to interact with the course instructor, Glenda Taylor, and much more.
