Faculty-Led Philosophy Study Tour
Prague, Czech Republic
Program Terms: Spring
This program is currently not accepting applications.
Restrictions: Suffolk applicants only
Program Description:
This is a Spring 14 semester course with a travel component at the end.  The course will take place in Prague and Krakow and will be led by Professor Johnson from the Philosophy Department.

Course description:
Freedom and dignity are at the heart of our humanity. These qualities enable us to develop and realize the fullness of our humanity. Yet these qualities are very difficult to acquire and sustain. It seems that what is most essential to our humanity is also the most elusive for so many of us. The purpose of this class and study tour is to study and seek some level of understanding of this enigma. The totalitarianism, wars, and genocide of our time are clear indications of the difficulties we face in achieving, acclaiming and maintaining our humanity. These three phenomena undermine and destroy the social and spiritual conditions that foster the freedom and dignity critical to our humanity. We will be visiting places very closely associated with this scenario: Prague, Auschwitz, and Krakow. By understanding the tragedies and struggles associated with these places we hope to gain a knowledge that will aid us in our contemporary struggles for human freedom and dignity.
