The modern science of Psychology emerged during the period of Enlightenment in the 19th. Since then, it has been dedicated to finding truths about human behavior and the mind. In the Jewish tradition, deep and wise psychological insights were already offered 2800 years before the first psychology lab was built in Leipzig, Germany in 1883.
In this class we will study together insights from the Jewish Bible that according to tradition were written by King Solomon. We will read texts from Song of Songs, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes and we will discuss the meaning of these ancient texts for “living a good life” in the 21st century.
