You have spent much of your life being told facts, ideas, how things work, and what to do. But here at ISI, you are your own teacher. In my classes, we will be learning things like religious ethics, philosophy of society, theories of mental health from clinical pedagogy, etc. But while I will be facilitating your learning, your education is now in your hands! What is the truth? How do we solve problems in a world where there are so many differing views of right and wrong? What is a "social problem" really, and what does it mean to "solve" them? What does it mean to become human? These are humanity's biggest questions. And it is up to you to take up these problems as your own and make a genuinely creative contribution to humankind.
