Renaissance Leadership & Rhetoric Italy Courses
SYLLABUS FOR: ORGL510 - Renaissance Leadership for the 21st Century taught by Dr. Michael Carey
COML513 - Renaissance Rhetoric taught by Dr. John Caputo
The Renaissance was inspired by the ideals of classical antiquity—awareness of human power and potentiality, and a passion for discovery—but it also transformed them to meet the challenges of the time. Now we can draw inspiration from Renaissance ideals, transforming them to meet our own challenges.
--Michael J. Gelb, from How To Think Like Leonardo da Vinci
