Course Description:

Selected Readings in Western Culture is a bilingual course in liberal education for non-English majors. The aim of this course is to introduce Western Culture of different ages, together with its historical events. But our major purpose is not merely to learn some facts, but rather, with the vision of historical penetration, to organically study Western Culture, the spiritual cores of which are the Hebrew culture, the Greek's individualism, the Romans' sense of social responsibility, etc. Upon completion of this course, students will have an overview of the rise and fall of Greece, the cultural heritage from Rome, Medieval civilization, the Renaissance, and the expansion of the modern industrial West. Furthermore, students will be able to understand some key ideas in Western Culture and gain an awareness of Western-culture-chauvinism. Finally, they will broaden their vision and improve their critical consciousnesses and critical ability concerning the Western Culture.
