How Culture Can Change Your Life

Our societies frequently proclaim their enormous esteem for culture. Music, film, literature and the visual arts enjoy superlative prestige and are viewed by many as getting close to the meaning of life.

But what is culture really for? Why should we bother with it, and how can we best draw value from it in the pursuit of more emotionally fulfilled lives?

How Culture Can Change Your Life proposes that works of culture were all made, in one way or another, with the idea of improving our understanding of the way we live. It suggests:

  • That the power of culture emerges best when we rely on it as a therapeutic tool.
  • Culture aids us in our quest to develop self-knowledge, empathy and communion.
  • Culture provides a sense of consolation.

This class connects a range of cultural masterpieces with our own dilemmas and pains around love, work and society, and invites us to see culture as a resource with which to address the complex agonies of being human.

It provides us with enduring keys to unlocking culture as a way of transforming our lives.
