History

GREAT DECISIONS DISCUSSION GROUP Great Decisions is an opportunity to study, discuss and share opinions about some of today’s complex foreign policy issues using articles provided by the Foreign Policy Association, an independent nonpartisan and non-governmental organization that has worked to educate the public about foreign policy issues since 1918. The eight topics for discussion in 2015 are: Russia and the Near Abroad, Privacy in the Digital Age, Sectarianism in the Middle East, India Changes Course, U.S. Policy toward Africa, Syria’s Refugee Crisis, Human Trafficking in the 21st Century and Brazil’s Metamorphosis.

JUSTICE SERVED COLD IN REEL COURT Hollywood loves a courtroom drama, at least when it can make money. This series will show Hollywood taking the law into its hands and offering four glimpses into justice being done—or undone, depending on your perspective. Henry Fonda fights for justice in one film, and Jodie Foster fights for it in another. Gregory Peck loses a case but wins an Oscar. Billy Wilder proves the case for Charles Laughton as one of the greatest actors in the history of film, and any objection will be overruled.

INTERNATIONAL SECURITY AFFAIRS: UTILITY OF HISTORY IN STRATEGIC ANALYSIS How much does history repeat and how predictable is it? We’ll look at the past century in 20-year increments and discuss history remembered, recovered, reinterpreted and invented. How do we draw lessons from events and trends? How may we use alternative history, the “what if” method, to understand international conflict? We’ll discuss aspects of our Civil War, WWII, modern Israel’s experience and surprises during the Korean War.

Part 1: First four topics. Fee includes the Great Decisions briefing book. Class meets every other Friday.

We’ll look at four films in a genre that has attracted such directors as John Huston, Stanley Kubrick, Spike Lee, the Hughes brothers and Sidney Lumet. This series will prove that crime does pay – with some of the greatest nail-biters in screen history.

ABE’S RELIGION: THE ELUSIVE SPIRITUALITY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN The 19th century was an age of religious fervor, and most aspiring politicians trumpeted their religious affiliations to make themselves more appealing to voters. Abraham Lincoln did not, nor did he ever join a church. Yet in his private writings he expressed some of the most sincere and nuanced thoughts on God that have ever been penned. This class will explore the shifting religious beliefs that he held during his life, and give Americans one more reason to respect our 16th president.

AFRICA A continent where there are over 3,000 ethnic groups and tribes speaking over 2,000 languages and dialects. Home to the world’s longest river and hottest desert. The birthplace of Apartheid and Nelson Mandela. A continent where the most common religion is Christianity. At one point over 90 percent controlled by European countries practicing colonialism and now home of 56 sovereign countries. The political history of Africa is long and complex and interwoven with economic and cultural influences. We will start with the earliest human settlements, over 20,000 years ago, and slowly work our way toward a better understanding of the political goals of those 56 countries, from the most populous (Nigeria) to the least populous (the Seychelles).

THE INVENTION OF VIRTUE How ancient Greek philosophers developed the idea of virtue and taught us how to thrive in society. Before Socrates, the earliest philosophers moved away from myth to a rational explanation of the world, but Socrates changed the question from “what is the world made of” to “how should I live?” Put on trial, he chose to die rather than give up his quest for the true meaning of virtue. After Socrates, philosophers such as Aristotle, the Epicureans and Stoics continued to examine the relationship between virtue and happiness. Text: “The Apology of Socrates” by Plato.

JEWS IN GERMANY FROM THE END OF WORLD WAR II THROUGH TODAY This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, which culminated in Nazi Germany’s horrendous policies of Genocide. It is a little known fact that from 1945 to 1948 about 200,000 Jewish refugees and holocaust survivors found temporary asylum in Germany, of all places. The occupying forces created the so-called DP Camps for these Displaced Persons and helped them to prepare for a future life in the United States and Israel. In our first session, German Historian Anette Isaacs will present us with fascinating insights into daily life in these DP camps. Our second session will focus on the astonishing fact that today’s Jewish Community in Germany is the third largest in all of Europe. We will explore why 70 years after World War II, Jewish Life is flourishing in Germany and especially in its capital Berlin.

THE TAINTED LEGACY OF RICHARD WAGNER To some he is the creator of divine music, to others he is history’s most controversial composer. One hundred seventy years after the world premiere of “Tannhaeuser” (1845), Wagner and his legacy that was tainted by both his own difficult personality and the usurpation of his music by Adolf Hitler, are still topics of lively debate. The famous English actor and writer Stephen Fry, himself a huge Wagnerian, created the compelling documentary “Wagner and Me.” In it Fry, a Jew who lost family members in the Holocaust, makes the journey to Bayreuth to explore his fascination for Wagner and confront his troubled legacy. Join German Historian Anette Isaacs for a screening of relevant scenes from “Wagner and Me” followed by a fascinating discussion of how the music and the legacy of Wagner are received in her native country today, 70 years after the demise of Hitler’s Nazi Regime.

THE SCIENCES: WHAT WE KNOW NOW AND WHAT WE STILL WANT TO KNOW What’s a Higgs boson and why should you care? What, for that matter, is the difference between an atom and a molecule? Our collective understanding of scientific principles has increased by leaps and bounds during the last 150 years or so. In fact, our knowledge has increased more during this relatively short time than in the preceding five or six millennia, and the pace of discovery continues to accelerate. But while we know more and more, the complexities inherent in the details of the various fields of science, in physics, chemistry and biology alike, have made it ever more difficult for non-scientists and as well as for today’s highly specialized scientists to achieve a broad understanding. These presentations are an attempt to provide an overview that is accessible to all. PART 1: ARE THE LAWS OF NATURE ABSOLUTE? Discover atoms, molecules, Mendeleyev, the periodic table, the three laws of thermodynamics and the arrow of time.

World religions TWO TOWERING TRANSCENDENTALISTS Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were mentor and pupil, friends and confidantes, who inspired and affirmed each other’s thinking. Emerson, 14 years older, devoured life, reading voraciously, writing relentlessly and giving an average of 80 lectures a year. He insisted on trusting oneself rather than authorities and scriptures, finding the divine within and realizing that “every natural fact reveals a spiritual fact.” Thoreau has become the patron saint of ecologists, conscientious objectors, non-violent protesters, advocates of simple living and proponents of limited government. Can anyone resist a man who, when asked if he had made his peace with God, replied, “I didn’t know we had quarreled.”

SPEAKING CHRISTIAN In his 2011 book, “Speaking Christian,” Marcus Borg argues that modern Christians are mired in a religious language so distorted that it becomes a stumbling block to faith. He states that Christianity’s essential vocabulary and the sacred texts in which it occurs, have been badly misinterpreted and misused. He writes “Speaking Christian” to reestablish the original and radical meaning of words such as God, Bible, faith, redemption, sacrifice and savior. This two-session class follows Marcus Borg as he works to redeem Christian language.

CHINESE RELIGIONS: CONFUCIANISM AND TAOISM You may not hear their names in the news very often, but Confucianism and Taoism have probably influenced more people than any other religions. Starting at the same time about 2,500 years ago during the “Axial Age,” in some ways they seem incompatible, even opposites — Confucianism’s yang to Taoism’s yin — yet in some ways they are complimentary, and many people have no problem adhering to both at the same time. But are they really religions or ways of life? We will try to answer that question as we look at their beliefs, practices and influence.

From the conventions of blue water to red warnings, explore how knowing how to read the signs will help you to unravel mysteries in the world. Page 11.

The Invention of Virtue – Discovery! How did ancient Greek philosophers develop the idea of virtue and teach us how to thrive in society? Before Socrates, the earliest philosophers moved away from myth to a rational explanation of the world, but Socrates changed the question from “what is the world made of” to “how should I live?” Put on trial, he chose to die rather than give up his quest for the true meaning of virtue. After Socrates, philosophers such as Aristotle, the Epicureans and Stoics continued to examine the relationship between virtue and happiness. Page 30.

Custer – Discovery! Custer’s Last Stand continues to inspire debate over the details of The Battle of Little Big Horn on June 25 and 26, 1876. Most of the discussion has focused on the Army’s account, but what of the Native American viewpoint? Understanding the leadership and circumstances of both sides will illuminate the particulars of this incredible event in our history! Page 30.
