Wednesdays only.

7pm - 9pm SPA Building

Instructor:  Harold Rosen (Master’s degrees in Religion, Philosophy & Education)


In a day of partisan division and nationalist tension, we do well to ask: How has humanity envisioned ‘One World’?  Exploring the roots of Cosmopolitanism, we draw from many traditions.  We unearth Indigenous, Classical, Eastern and Western views of a united

 world – peaceful, just and prosperous.  We

discover lofty concepts of Ultimate Reality,

Human Fulfillment, and Universal Justice –

through a panoramic survey of humanity’s

visions of solidarity.  Our approach is

multi-disciplinary – drawing from world

religions, philosophy, cosmology and history.

The image of One World has evolved

impressively, yielding mansions of thought and

aspiration.  Where has this quest arrived today?

Globalists emphasize human rights, consultative governance, earthcare ethics and spiritual development.  Examining several set of ‘sister heritages’, will bring us well-grounded hope for the future.
