"Qurious Wisdom Conversations on the Quotidian with Qohelet and Lao Tzu"
This interdisciplinary course explores the ancient philosophy and praxis of wisdom teachers— both the Hebrew sage, Qohelet (ca. 4th Century BCE) and the Taoist sage, Lao Tzu (ca. 6th Century BCE) in their Qurious Conversations about the Quotidian, and ways of walking more wisely in life.
We will study from the new translations and commentaries on this strange book Qohelet in Merest Breath (Panui, 2023) and understand what makes it unique as a work of Hebrew Wisdom literature alongside Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching: A Translation of the Startling New Documents Found at Guodian” (CUP, 2005).
