Life Lessons From the Great MythsDownloadable Audiobook - 2015
Professor Fears does more than just deliver insightful lectures. He tells vibrant stories with passion and drama, so much so that you'll find yourself not just learning about these myths and stories, but actually reliving them. You'll watch the brothers Romulus and Remus fight over where to build the city of Rome and, in the process, give birth to an iconic ancient empire; walk with Moses and the Israelites as they escape from Egyptian bondage and establish religious traditions that continue to this day; charge with Jesse James as he commits his daring crimes and transcends into a veritable folk hero of the American frontier; follow alongside American troops as they raise the U.S. flag over Iwo Jima for a photograph that would inspire the nation; and much more. The search for wisdom is, according to Professor Fears, the paramount purpose in life. And there is much wisdom to be gleaned from the world's great myths. By the final powerful and stirring lecture of this course, you're sure to find yourself wiser than you were before you started.
