FYS 089 Virtue

We will approach the topic of virtue from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. The course will be structured around inquiries into the nature and causes of different sorts of human behavior, from self-discipline and studiousness to anger and resentment. Students will critically consider their own motivations and the causes of their actions. Students will be required to engage in self-transformation projects of their own design intended to alter their own dispositions and habits.
