Philosophy and Human Destiny

The University of Oklahoma via Janux

This course may be unavailable.


What is it to be human? How did we get here, and what should we strive for, or try to be like? What can we hope for in this life, or (if there is one) the next? In this course we will consider and critically examine a variety of different answers to these questions, both Religious and Secular, from both the East and the West. We will examine accounts of human nature and destiny as presented in the writings of philosophers, theologians and authors whose works explore the fundamental meaning of our individual lives and the destiny of the human species.

  • ​It's been a terrific course and journey even if I have already dealt with the majority of the philosophers/thinkers involved in this course (but repetita iuvant!). Dr. Neal Judisch's teaching has been outstanding. Very recommended because it's about the fundamental questions of our existance while often we're engaged in wasting our time in futile issues.
