Course Description

This course will explore “self-cultivation”: the question of how we can become the best version of ourselves. We will read texts about self-cultivation by philosophers from different places and historical periods, including ancient Greece, China, India, and Germany. We will discuss whether these philosophers saw self-cultivation as the same for everyone, or whether they thought it should be different for men and women. We will consider how these ideas may influence our lives and the way we see ourselves today.
