World-Viewing: ICS introduces new course

On September 27th, ICS introduced a new course in the Master of Worldview Studies program. This course, World-Viewing: An Introduction to Worldview Studies, taught by Associate Professor of Worldview Studies, Dr. Gideon Strauss, serves as a touchstone for the MWS program as a whole, providing students with an overview of the program, an initial set of frameworks and tools for finding their way through the program, and a selection of readings that will prime students for reflecting on six interrelated wayfinding questions: Who am I? Where do I belong? What do I believe? What do I love? What opportunities and constraints do I face in my particular context? What am I to do with my life? The course will use a new hybrid format, with six bi-weekly in-person classroom sessions as well as weekly structured interactive online forum discussions in response to reading assignments.
