Blount Capstone Worldviews

An examination of the "worldviews" of various epochs and the completion of a senior project. Students learn how individual beliefs about what is actual, what is possible, and what is desirable can be combined into a single unified understanding of the world, and how such a worldview has implications for what we should do and how we should live.
