The Rhetoric of Transcendence

The Rhetoric of Transcendence
In this course students will study the metaphysical nature of transcendence as a concept that relates to religion, art, popular media, and even drugs. We will study the ways people attempt to relay transcendence through words, actions, and creative endeavors while also considering how we have--or have not--achieved transcendence in our own lives. Students in this course will write reflections of their own states of transcendence, rhetorically analyze sermons and popular culture pieces that embody transcendence, and attempt to capture the ineffable in a final project. 3 hrs. Sem.
