The recent discovery of the birth and evolution of the universe represents a dramatic change in human self-understanding. We humans are just waking up and beginning to consider what it means to be part of the natural world and a universe that is alive. In down-to-earth terms, this course will examine the shift that is taking place in our understanding of the world, the opportunities it presents to the human community, and the implication it has understanding who we are. Classes begin June 22.
