Advocates of Peace
Prerequisites: ENGL 1113
3 Credits

Advocates of Peace deals with a section of East-West culture and politics often overlooked today: the positive and successful influence one individual can have over the masses. in this course, the student will recognize the interdependency of people from totally different geographical and cultural backgrounds using the same ideas of non-violence and non-aggression to combat suppression of and discrimination against any group of people. Two dynamic leaders, Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., have been chosen to exemplify this process. They are as radically different in most respects as one can imagine, and yet, as philosopher politicians, they used the same concepts of non-aggressiveness and non-violence to bring freedom to their peoples.
