In this article, Helena Sullivan shares the mission statement and vision for the journal Resuscitating Paideia. She also explains how reading literature for wisdom looks as it's applied to a particular text, in this case, Homer's Odyssey. More specifically, she examines Book V of that epic, in which Odysseus leaves the goddess Kalypso.
