CORE 453 - Obsession: Understanding


Prerequisites: CORE 101  through CORE 105  and at least sixth semester standing CORE 101  through CORE 105  and at least sixth semester standing
Obsession appears to be a human trait that showcases the best and worst of human possibility. It is from obsession that great works of art can be produced, and from obsession that great thoughts and world changing technologies are born. Obsession is also at the root of some of the worst of humankind. This course engages in an interdisciplinary investigation of what obsession is, how it can affect history and culture, and how it is portrayed in literature and fine art. By the conclusion of the course we will have a better understanding of how one person’s obsession can mean so much to the greater collective, and sometimes even change the course of how we will know the world.
