If you have the heart of an explorer and the mind of a philosopher, this program is for you. From Lisbon where Vasco da Gama explored a trade route to India, to Barcelona where Christopher Columbus set sail to discover a new world—each step of the journey connects you to the vision and determination that led to the creation of the Western world.
In this program, you study the ideas of Voltaire, Rousseau, Darwin, and Nietzsche as well as the motives of Machiavelli, Marx, Stalin, and Mao. As you travel and uncover the inner layers of each culture, you are left with a lasting impression of our modern collective consciousness. Along the way, you will enjoy delicious cuisine while getting into the best shape of your life!
