New Course descriptions:

CORE 390-13A Senior Seminar
The course will be "The Experience of Illness." Considering how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, …how we go down into the pit of death and feel the waters of annihilation close above our heads and wake thinking to find ourselves in the presence of the angels and the harpers when we have a tooth out. … When we think of this, as we are so frequently forced to think of it, it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature. (Virginia Woolf, “On Being Ill” in The Moment and Other Essays.)

We all have had some experience with illness in our lives. Yet, we rarely take the time to reflect on the implications of these experiences at times when we feel well. The tendency seems to be to put these negative experiences behind us as quickly as we can so we can get on with the rest of our lives. There are at least two problems with this attitude. For one, not all illnesses are so easily overcome. For another, if Virginia Woolf is correct, this attitude cuts us off from a significant, possibly enlightening, universal human experience. Not only does that limit our own self-understanding, it also makes it hard to empathize with those we are close to--whether that be a friend, family member, or (for those of you entering into the health care professions) a patient--who is suffering from illness or disability. In this course we’ll explore the meanings of health, illness, disability and disease from the patient’s perspective. My hope is that we’ll gain a better understanding of our own experiences with sickness and health as well as the experiences of our friends and loved ones. The goal of the Senior Seminar program is to develop the student's ability to make good moral judgments on issues that affect our lives.
