Ishmael (Dan Gillmore)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

“Ishmael is a 1992 philosophical novel by Daniel Quinn. The novel examines the hidden cultural biases driving modern civilization and explores themes of ethics, sustainability, and global catastrophe.”

A difficult book to describe, but one of monumental importance. Each week we will read a few chapters and then come together in class to discuss the reading. This is a rare “serious Dan” class, so come ready to engage with complex ideas and good dialogues. Expect a few hours of reading time outside of class, and to start reading before the first class convenes.
