Understanding the way in which the world works so often has to begin with an understanding of the self. The units offered in Clemente provided expert guidance to those of us who were struggling to understand the injustices and inequities we sometime encountered in life. Studying introductory units of Ethics, Sociology, Australian Aboriginal History and Literature provided an effective entry point into deeper consideration of not just self but the wider world too. The world suddenly became alive, the structure of existence, how we interact as human beings suddenly took on a clarity that had been absent before. I watched as my fellow travellers on this journey also developed a renewed sense of connection to the world around them, to their communities and even to themselves.
