PL 408 - Contemporary Mysticism and Spirituality

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: PL 201  and one additional PL 200-level course. A mystical world-view attentive to the unity of all things, the possibility of release from suffering, and an awakening to a "higher" plane of reality or to the richness of the natural world, have long been themes of ancient philosophies, both Eastern and Western. Such spiritual themes are also central to contemporary authors writing in both popular and explicitly philosophical ways. Students explore a series of such twentieth- and twenty-first-century texts, as well as their own beliefs and experiences.
