BLS 320: Evil and the Quest for Knowledge: The Matter of Faust

Evil and the Quest for Knowledge: The Matter of Faust

The archetypal figure of Faust has played an important part in the imaginative life of Western culture for over six centuries. He is the quintessential modern man, scorning tradition in favor of experience, faith in favor of reason, and pursuing his quest for knowledge even at the expense of his soul. He represents the spirit of the Renaissance, the dawning age of science and scepticism and an uneasy relationship with religion. In this seminar we look at the changing fate of Faust, from condemnation to redemption and back, as we in the industrialized world struggle with our own questions about what we pay socially, environmentally and spiritually for our technological progress.
