Welcome. In this winter-term course, we will ask questions about love:

  • What is love?
  • How does one develop and maintain self-love?
  • How has love been a force for social change in modern times?
  • Does love ever fail? If so, why?
  • In these troubled times, how can love prevail?

Over the next four weeks, we will learn from many great thinkers on these questions, including bell hooks, John Lewis and Desmond Tutu, among others. If all goes well, we will work hard, create a trusting community, have fun, and feel renewed in our belief in love and its power, never more important than in Winter 2022.

This is the fourth time I have taught this course. I look forward to it.
