EP433 is the "Integrative Experience" in the Department of English and Philosophy. Its foundation is archetype studies, an approach found in the humanities and social sciences. In one of two discipline-specific seminars (literature or philosophy), cadets trace the history of a given archetype through a variety of cultural artifacts. Bridging past and present, the course examines a specific contemporary incarnation of the archetype; finally, students look toward the future by reimagining the archetype in response to contemporary issues. Archetypes have included the City, the Self, and the Traveler. The course emphasizes independent work, creativity, and intellectual risk-taking.
