Virtues Embodied

Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012
Campus Ethics Director David DeCosse partners with a student to explore the virtue of compassion through movement.

If you were to show the virtue of compassion using only your body, what would that look like?  Mary Zieber, an SCU senior and Hackworth Fellow at the Ethics Center, explored that question with a group of students, faculty, and staff today.  Using guided improvisation, the group "embodied" sympathy, empathy, and compassion.  Zieber is a theater major whose fellowship concentrates on ethics and the arts.
