In this course, we will learn about the ways in which Amish communities regulate and maintain their communitarian lifestyle. We will inquire into Amish attitudes towards technology, healthcare, work, and worship, among other topics. In the process, the lifestyles we live and the choices we make in the non-Amish world will come into focus. What assumptions do we make about education, competition, and community?
