Colin Woodard's American Character is subtitled A History of the Epic Struggle Between Individual Liberty and the Common Good. It offers a powerful follow-up to his acclaimed, American Nations (2011), a study of North America’s eleven regional “nations” and their varied political and cultural influences. In the newer book (2016) Woodard argues that maintaining a liberal democracy, a society where mass human freedom is possible, requires finding a balance between protecting individual liberty and nurturing a free society.

It may seem counterintuitive, but everything we perceive is imaginary. In this class, we will do a contemplative meditation to see experientially that things really are just imaginary, then we will discuss how this understanding can lead us to more peaceful and happy lives.

Would you be surprised to find that violence is four times greater in health care than in private industry? Only law enforcement personnel experience more. We will explore why the problem exists, who is involved, and why so little research is done on prevention.

Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and his related theory of sexual selection, completely changed the way biologists approach the study of life. Yet there was a great deal that Darwin did not know, and it took more than a century before his theory was united with genetics, leading to the modern science of evolution. All in all, the course will focus on what Darwin knew, what he was right and wrong about, how modern biology and genetics have broadened his theory, why scientists find it so congenial, and why fundamentalists from many religions vehemently reject it.
