2017 Week 7 Lectures

Week Seven :: August 5 – August 12
The Nature of Fear
Now more than ever, fear dominates us in ways we may not even be aware of — in politics, in advertising, in media. In this week, we grapple with recognizing fear and what it does to us.
What is the history of fear as a political tool and how effectively has it been used to shape our politics?
We examine fear’s effect on the brain and how fear has been shaped by evolution.
How and why does fear work in persuading, motivating and manipulating us?
We look at what it means to seek out that which scares us, from Grimm’s Fairy Tales and ghost stories to rollercoasters and haunted houses.
 
Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Spirituality in an Age of Anxiety 
Theologians have begun calling the time in which we are living ‘The Age of Anxiety,’ and describing an immersion in an ocean of fear and insecurity. In this week we will strive to identify the presenting causes of anxiety in our times, and in previous times, and to discern what secularists, religions, and spiritual modalities can offer as antidotes.
