The courses being assembled here all have a core ‘engine’ – concern for deepening our sense of what it is to be human.
“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are
directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical
existence and leading the individual towards freedom.” (Albert Einstein)
THE 4Cs as a model for deepening what it is to be human – and to combat de-humanization
Essentially we are human because of our;
Our Creativity (Arts)
and our Criticality (Philosophy and Sciences)
and because we do these things in Communities

The outer ring concerns the social and interpersonal.
The rest is a way of representing our inner dynamics of consciousness as we engage – with each other, the world or our self.
We engage with either an ‘I’ voice (subjective-creative), the ‘We’ voice (caring-other-centred) or ‘IT’ voice (objective, as in philosophy or the scientific)
All three ways of engaging are means to knowledge and reality.
