Through Dec. 5, the colleges is releasing a new video lecture on a weekly basis that those who register for the course may watch at their discretion. After discussing with involved faculty, external affairs settled on doing the course on Shakespeare, Director of Programs for External Affairs Matt Bell said. Although Smith filmed three lectures for each of the two plays, Arnn did the first lesson in which he discusses Shakespeare’s significance. “Shakespeare thinks and writes beautiful thoughts,” Arnn said. “In the Symposium, Socrates posits that the greatest poets would write both comedy and tragedy. Shakespeare does that and also history plays. He can show us all of nature and its hierarchy low to high.” The set of lectures are also congruent with the college’s focus on self-government through the virtues and vices in human nature, Smith said.
