What is the self? Is it a body, a soul, a spirit? Is it an individual's consciousness or memory? In this course, we examine how individuals construct selves within a variety of religious traditions? A autobiography is more than a sketch of a life. It is an attempt to understand oneself and the world, culture, and tradition in which one lives. We'll begin the semester with Augustine's Confessions, one of the world's earliest interior autobiographies, and we'll compare it with Al-Ghazali's Deliverance from Error. We'll end with two American texts: The Autobiography of Malcolm X and Tara Westover's Educated.
