Overview/Purpose:

In our examination of heroic virtues we explore the idea that the character of the hero may be as important as the heroic act or mission itself. We ask the question:

“Would a hero be a hero if he or she did not possess virtues of character that were as inspiring as the 'heroic' quest itself?”

Objectives:

Students will explore the anatomy of a heroic act and engage in a critical discussion about the difference between a heroic action or mission and the labors of everyday life expected from all of us as contributing, productive members of society.

Students will:
  • Break down the heroic act into five parts
  • Discuss examples of heroic quests
  • Be challenged to reflect on their own heroic quest
