HUM 1030 - Representing the World


[LGCC4] This course explores a selection of works of art, literature, philosophy, and history from ancient to modern times in order to investigate how humanity tries to explain and understand the world we inhabit. Like scientific theories, stories and philosophies are essentially ways human beings explain the world and our place in it. Representing the world through literature, philosophy, and history has also been a way for humans to question and to challenge accepted explanations for the way the world works. Students in the course will focus on how the human race needs to explain the world in order to understand it, and how such representations are also often a way to question the accepted explanation of the world.

Prerequisites & Notes
