Dark Matter.  The Multiverse.  Milton's Paradise Lost. 

His Dark Materials, a series by Philip Pullman, ties these themes together, alongside concepts of family and betrayal, experimentation, friendship, magic, innocence, and so much more.

This class extends on the thinking we built together in Scientific and Rational Thought & Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality.  Together we will read through the trilogy: The Golden Compass (or Northern Lights), The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass.  We'll explore the ideas, big and small, challenge ourselves to bring rationality to it, but also to see deeper into the literary and theological allusions.

A syllabus is forthcoming.  I have planned for 15 weeks of class.  If this needs to change drastically for any reason, I will only do so with extensive communication with you.


Thanks for being a part of this, as we continue to think together.
