The travel week is upon us; six days with my core course in another European nation. Fittingly, we are headed to the birthplace of western philosophy: Greece. Not only will I have the opportunity to see the places where some of the great Greek epics were said to originate, but also have a time to reflect and learn. It is a time to connect the dots; to understand. There, I will have an opportunity to put theories formulated by Heidegger and Nietzsche to use; do these grand ruins still work and do the monumental art they attest to still have pieces of salvation within? We’ll find out.
