There is a reason why mankind has always been fascinated with tales of adventure. They are not simply stories of the clash of swords, bold exploration, and derring-do - they contain a wealth of truth about our world and ourselves. In this course, students will use Socratic discussion to uncover the deeper meanings in some of western culture's best-loved adventure stories.
