PAX 239 Lifestyles of Nonviolence 4cr

Focusing on the spiritual and ethical dimensions of both personal and social expressions of violence and nonviolence, this class will analyze the theory, history, and practice of nonviolent social change as an alternative to the use of the conflict. The lives and writings of Dorothy Day, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. will be investigated, as well as nonviolent social movements in our own time. The study of society will be accomplished by personal considerations of life-style, using essays and class discussion to foster harmony within the life of the spirit.
