Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The Search for Meaning and Value in History and Religion is by far the most valuable course one may take in their life. This course opens one's eyes to so many different societies and schools of thought that were so revolutionary that they influence nearly every aspect of the modern world. While on this journey that takes three semesters, every single student changes in their thought methods, self understanding, and how they relate to others, while at the same time finding more questions to the most pertinent problems of the human condition.
I gained a deeper understanding of gender roles, logic, philosophy, and ethics. I have questioned my very personality and consciousness and re-imagined my future. I have learned about how past societies like Rome and Greece treated sexuality so differently and ethics so transparently that I feel that I am a completely new person. I am awake.

Advice for students:
Always keep your mind open. The professor wants you to soar. Don't be afraid when your questions lead you back to the text, to more questions. This is the very purpose of the course. Trust yourself and trust the text when it speaks to you.
