SYE 4015 - The Neighbor, From the Bible to Beyond

Hours: 4
To the question, “Which of the commands is the greatest?” Jesus answered, “To love your God…and the second, which is like it, to love your neighbor as yourself.” This class examines the Judeo-Christian injunction to neighbor-love. It examines the question of who is one’s neighbor, and what it means to love one’s neighbor. The class begins with Biblical sources, but it also examines the reception of this injunction in secular philosophical and theoretical sources. Students are required to develop and complete a group action project that applies the injunction.
