UU Adult Education for the Winter and Spring and Summer 2017

Beginning in February the adult education class will be examining “The Meaning of Life” from the perspective of many religions and philosophies.

The “Great Courses” series, on the Meaning of Life: Perspectives from the World’s Great Intellectual Traditions will offer the background information through a series of lectures by Professor Jay L Garfield, Ph.D.

He is the professor of Humanities and Philosophy at Smith College. During each class we will view one or two lectures (they are short) and then continue with our own discussion on the topics.

Included is a brief list of some of the philosophies we will examine
Hindu—-Bhagavad-Git
Greek—Aristotle
Judaism—Book of Job
China—-Confucius
China and India—Buddhism

We will begin our first class on February 22, 2017, at Steve and Rita Layson’s home at 301 North Tremont St. in Greensboro.

We will begin promptly at 7:00 PM. Classes will last an hour to hour and a half. Classes thereafter will continue to meet on the third Wednesday of the month from March to August.

Our first class will be a general discussion of what we think is the meaning of life. Please join us.
