Course Description

Why are we are wrestling with how to respond to a growing negativism and cultural malaise in America?  Arthur Brooks  refers to our current malaise as a ‘culture of contempt,’ yet suggests practical remedies. This course explores answers to the following questions: What were and are the fundamental values and commitments that constitute the heart and soul of America as a nation? What are current indicators that the ‘higher angels’ of America’s soul have been/are being obscured? What commitments will and can we, as Americans, make to replenish America’s soul and manifest America’s higher angels?  We will reflect on the origins of the current American state of affairs, attempt to understand, name and describe them, and leave with a plan of action toward calling out and on America’s higher angels.
