Path of Wisdom

Subject: INQS

Catalog Number: 125

Registration Number: 6708

This course explores the world's "wisdom" traditions through the study of the Biblical Wisdom books (Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Psalms). We will bring in other texts from ancient Southwest Asian traditions, other world religions, and contemporary voices that deal with wisdom, suffering, and theodicy. We will consider how these texts continue to have relevance and address the questions: Does the world have order and meaning? What would a "successful" and "happy" life look like, and how might we pursue that goal? How should we make sense of suffering and injustice in the created order?
