Course Description:

Walking in the world is a time-tested approach to jumpstart body and brain and latent creativity. Every walk is a promise of possibility, novelty, and fruitful connections. In this class, we will discuss models of thoughtful strolling from Socrates to the Paris flâneur to Henry David Thoreau and contemporary literature. In a series of light readings, we’ll look for answers to the question: what, if anything, is special about walking for thinking? We will also walk, think, and write. As the weather improves, we’ll take our class on the move. You will also be expected to take your own walk, alone or with a pensive friend, record your thoughts and observations, and present to the class on what you learned.
