Explore conflict and the possibility of its resolution into peace. Conflicts such as war, political and social oppression, interfaith dispute, violent crime, family abuse, and inner struggles all present obstacles to peace. A variety of disciplinary perspectives (including philosophy, religion, psychology, political science, sociology, geography, art and literature) will be used to consider central themes: the nature of peace, the nature of conflict, causes and types of conflict, transforming conflict into peace, and tech-niques for peaceful resolution. Three hours lecture each week. Co-listed with credit.
