Courage

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Felicia Rivera Megret

Courage (also called bravery or valour) is the choice and willingness to confront pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Physical courage is bravery in the face of physical pain, hardship, death or threat of death, while moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame scandal discouragement, or personal loss.

In the Western tradition, notable thoughts on courage have come from philosophers, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, and Kierkegaard. In the Eastern tradition, thoughts on courage were offered by the Tao Te Ching. More recently, courage has been explored by the discipline of psychology

This module looks at what courage looks like for students, provides the opportunity for exploring acts of courage, class discussion on what a courageous decision might be, and personal reflection on how students can observe courage in others.

We will explore

  • What courage looks like in the world around us
  • How does it feel to be courageous?
  • Class discussion on people they think are brave
  • Examples of courage
  • Personal reflection on personal examples of courage
