In the upwardly mobile American culture, there has evolved a body of ideas that might be termed “Success thinking”. These ideas have been expressed by a variety of people from Benjamin Franklin to Tony Robbins. Some of them have roots in the Bible or in other ancient writings. In this class, we will discuss the purveyors of “success” and their ideas and explore similarities and differences. Are the practices advocated by these thinkers practical and efficacious? Are any of them dangerous or deceptive? It is expected that there will be lively class discussion.
