Cicero described education in the liberal arts as humanitas and this Latin word which he filled with new meaning has had a tremendous influence on shaping the educational ideal present in the contemporary term 'humanities'. We will follow the rich and convoluted development of this concept from antiquity through the Renaissance and beyond to our own times when the importance of the humanities for a healthy democracy is under debate. Students of Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, those interested in the History of Education, in Political Science and all who are curious about the origins of the deceptively familiar term 'humanities' will benefit from the course. No papers. Grade is based on class discussion and one short exam.
