Ars Moriendi: Death and the Art of Dying

First-Year Seminar Program 187

Usual Description

If death is not upon us now, thinks Hamlet, then it will come later, and if not later, then now. The readiness is all, but what is readiness? Is there an ars moriendi, an art to dying well? Can our understanding of death change the way we live? We will use fiction, poetry, philosophy, music, and visual art to answer these questions, and then test and extend our classroom perspectives with partners in the community.
