This course provides a critical investigation into the quest for meaning and happiness as found in the Catholic tradition. Beginning with fundamental Catholic claims about what it means to be a human being, this course explores the call to beatitude in materials from several disciplines, including theology, philosophy, literature, and art, as well as ancient, medieval, and contemporary sources. Topics explored include a consideration of human persons in relation to divine persons, the supernatural end to human life, the human person as experiencing desire and suffering, the Christian paradox that joy may be found in the giving of one's self, and the search for happiness through friendship and love. Through all these topics, the course particularly examines the question, "What is the specifically unique character of Christian happiness?"

This course explores from an interdisciplinary perspective the history of the Catholic Church as it interacts with the secular world and is shaped by its dominant personalities and events. No other institution in history has survived, and flourished, for so long and in the face of so many challenges. This course will critically reflect upon the history of the Church, from its origins in the Apostolic Age to the modern period, as a series of cycles with a common pattern of creativity, achievement, and retreat. Students may expect to complete the course with an awareness and understanding of the major personalities and events, secular and ecclesial, that have shaped the life of the Church.

At the center of the Catholic vision are the two great works of divine love: creation and redemption. This course considers the implications of these divine works for a radical reconsideration of the world and the human person. Students will examine characteristic Catholic approaches to and emphases concerning creation, redemption and ecclesiology, and discuss how Catholic understandings of creation and redemption inform, respond to, and critique Catholic practices in various cultural settings. In addition, the course will compare and contrast contemporary Catholic cultural monuments with that produced in earlier eras, and compare and contrast Catholic Christianity with other forms of Christian and non-Christian belief and practices. In illustrating its themes, the course draws upon sources in art, literature, history, philosophy, and theology with special attention given to the intellectual, spiritual, and cultural consequences of Catholic doctrine. Prerequisites: CATH 101

This course examines the definition of "woman" and "man" from both the historical and the philosophical perspective. Readings and discussion center on the question of (1) whether there are important philosophical differences between women and men and (2) whether such differences are natural or socially constructed. The implications of various answers to those questions are then examined, with special attention given to the Catholic tradition's reflections on the nature and ends of marriage, the character of priestly ordination, friendship between women and men, and human sexuality. The purpose of this course is to examine the ways in which thinkers from a wide spectrum have construed male/female relationships. A major component of this course consists in the study of power and the way it operates both in history and in contemporary culture.

This course provides an in-depth exploration of how literature engages Christian thought, experience, and practice and how a reader engages works of imaginative literature from an intellectually serious Christian perspective. The course will also provide an introduction to theories in the interdisciplinary field of religion and literature. Religious themes studied will come from a variety of literary forms, including those of myth, history, parable, short story, essay, children's literature, poem, and novel. The literature chosen may reflect a variety of cultural backgrounds so that, among other things, we may consider how meaning may be affected by changes in worldview. Specific topics vary; accordingly, credit may be earned more than once for this course number. CATH 334 (15 seats) is cross-listed with ENGL 334 (5 seats). Prerequisite: ENGL 121, 190, 201, 202, 203, or 204.

This course provides an investigation into the ways in which Catholicism is inherently social and ecclesial. Its specific focus is on the Christian engagement with the world. The course's framework will be taken from the analysis of society into three spheres of action (culture, politics, and economics) as described in Centesimus annus. We will examine the ways that Revelation, the sacramental life, and the teachings of the Church call Catholics to seek holiness and to witness to their faith in the world. Specific topics may include social and economic justice, politics and public policy, lay and religious apostolates, education, and marriage and family. Course materials may include resources from philosophy, theology, history, economics, and political science. This course will satisfy the third level Faith and Catholic Tradition core requirement.

John Henry Newman has been called, somewhat misleadingly, the father of the Second Vatican Council. According to Jarsoslav Pelikan, "(n)ot only to his latter day disciples, ...but to many of those who have drawn other conclusions from his insights, John Henry Newman has become the most important theological thinker of modern times." T.S. Eliot had insisted that he is one of the two most eloquent sermon writers in the English language. Pope Benedict XVI stressed his importance as the theologian of conscience when he presided at his beatification in England. In this course we will examine not only Cardinal Newman's most important theological works focusing on the development of doctrine and the role of conscience in relation to Church authority, but also his philosophical works addressing the relations of faith and reason, his work on university education and selected poetry, meditations and devotions, and sermons.

Augustine began writing City of God in 413 AD. His intention was to defend the Catholic church against its pagan critics, who held Christianity responsible for the sack of Rome by the Goths in 410. By the time he had finished, more than a decade later, Augustine’s work had grown into a complex engagement of the entirety of pagan Roman thought and culture through a masterful interweaving of Scripture and the foundational works of pagan Roman culture. This course will consist of a close reading of the whole of City of God, with particular focus on this interweaving of political, historical, philosophical, and theological themes that have made Augustine’s work second only to the Bible in the shaping of Western Christianity.

This course is primarily Asynchronous with live Zoom sessions once, every other week - Friday's 6-7pm.

In the first century, Christianity had already encountered and been influenced by philosophy of the ancient world. In the exchange between theology and philosophy, philosophers have provided both challenges to and defenses of Christian claims. Moreover, theology has often taken up philosophical concepts, systems of thought, and technical language. As a result, knowledge of philosophy is necessary in order to understand theology. This course aims to provide a basic understanding of select philosophical schools and concepts that constitute much of the foundation of Catholic theology, especially in the areas of metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. Special attention will be given to the work of Plato, Aristotle, and St. Thomas Aquinas. A guiding question in approaching this course will be, “What ought I know about philosophy in order better to understand my faith?

The rise and dramatic development of the modern natural sciences have shaped our world in varied and prominent ways. How do these natural sciences fit into Catholic intellectual, spiritual, and cultural life? Just what are the natural sciences, really? How are they related to philosophy and theology? How are they integrated into a "Catholic imaginary”? In this course, we seek to understand and answer these important questions through an exploration of important episodes, topics, and texts from the two-thousand-year history of Christianity and science.

The story of the Church is different in important ways from the stories of any other society or institution. No other human institution has survived, and flourished, for so long and in the face of so many challenges. But the Church is not simply an institution, though it has some institutional characteristics. It is a distinct society that penetrates and engages secular societies, that exists within them without being subordinated to them or absorbed by them.

Indeed, the Church can never be separated from secular societies. It always takes root in the soil of a pre-existing culture and seeks to modify it so that it conforms more closely to the vision of the Gospel. At the same time, it is nourished but also shaped, even distorted, by that culture.

Drawing on the work of Christopher Dawson, Jacques Maritain, and other prominent Catholic thinkers, we will explore what Dawson called a history “beneath the surface” of secular society, as the Church has struggled to live out the Great Commission (Mt 28.19-20). This is a story of heroism and success but also of corruption and failure, of fidelity but also temptation and distraction. We can learn from the strengths and weaknesses and also come to appreciate how we may be prone to both in the future.

The structure of the course will follow the insight that the story of the Church, from its origins in the Apostolic Age to the modern period, can be understood as a series of cycles with a common pattern of creativity, achievement and retreat. Students may expect to complete the course with an awareness and understanding of some the major personalities and events, secular and ecclesial, that have shaped the life of the Church.

This course will let us explore a set of great Catholic fiction from the modern era, and it will also encourage us to examine a wide set of issues—moral, philosophical, and religious—raised by these works. We will work together toward defining, in a way that intellectually satisfies each of us, what a Catholic novel is, and we will give careful attention to the problems, conflicts, and controversies to which the concept has given rise.

This course provides an in-depth exploration of how literature engages Christian thought, experience, and practice and how a reader engages works of imaginative literature from an intellectually serious Christian perspective. The course will also provide an introduction to theories in the interdisciplinary field of religion and literature. Religious themes studied will come from a variety of literary forms, including those of myth, history, parable, short story, essay, children's literature, poem, and novel. The literature chosen may reflect a variety of cultural backgrounds so that, among other things, we may consider how meaning may be affected by changes in worldview. Specific topics vary; accordingly, credit may be earned more than once for this course number. This course satisfies a Contexts and Convergences requirement for English majors and a literature requirement for English with a Creative Writing and English with a Professional Writing emphasis majors. It also satisfies a Catholic Studies major/minor requirement. ENGL 334 (5 seats) is cross-listed with CATH 334 (15 seats). Prerequisite: ENGL 121, 190, 201, 202, 203, or 204.

Active nonviolence as a means for societal defense and social transformation analyzed through case studies of actual nonviolent movements, examining their political philosophy and how this philosophy is reflected in their methods and strategies. Examples of possible case studies include: Mahatma Gandhi's movement for a free India, Danish resistance to Nazi occupation, the struggle for interracial justice in the United State, an integrated Canada-to-Cuba peace-and-freedom walk, the campaign to close the U.S. Army School of the Americas (WHINSEC), fair trade movements, and the Honeywell Project. The course emphasizes the theory and active practice of nonviolence as well as oral histories of successful nonviolent movements. Usually offered every semester.

In this class students will investigate how and why particular policies are developed, proposed, adopted, and implemented; will explore how social values shape and impact public policies; and will learn how to frame issues in ways that allow for more effective advocacy. The class will examine the relative power of diverse corporate and non-profit sectors in influencing policy debates and outcomes, including the role of think tanks. Students will analyze the limitations and strengths of diverse approaches to advocacy ranging from third-party appeals and solidarity efforts to elite decision makers, as well as the prospects for a politics of agency rooted in citizen-centered politics in which people mobilize to meet the needs of their communities. The course will integrate basic theory, interaction with public policy analysts and advocates, personal experience in persuasive advocacy, and case studies focused on issues such as climate change, economic inequality, land-food-hunger, and approaches to health care. Assignments will introduce students to various tools for persuasive advocacy and allow them to develop skill sets for using them.

An introduction to issues surrounding conflict and the resolution of conflict in today's world focusing primarily on its contextual manifestation at the international, regional and intrastate levels. The course will explore important structural, social and psychological explanations of conflict. Attention will be given to ethnic and nationalist themes surrounding conflicts and their resolution at the intrastate and international levels. The course will examine how different types of intervention affect conflicts (the media, force, other types of third party intervention). Effective methods that foster an environment conducive to resolving or managing disputes will be studied. As part of the final task, the course will critically study how institutions such as power-sharing arrangements, federalism, and the rule of law figure into establishing a lasting basis for peaceful co-existence. For Justice and Peace Studies majors doing a concentration in Conflict Transformation, the course will complement JPST 370 Conflict Mediation, but there are no prerequisites and the course is open to students in other majors.

Students are required to take this seminar during the semester they are doing an internship of 7-10 hrs/wk. The seminar meets three times (at the beginning, middle, and end of the semester), to provide opportunities for those engaged in individual placements to get peer support for their discernment process. At its core is a reflective process designed to lead students to: a deeper understanding of the practical means of working for social change; an evaluation of their internship experience (both in terms of gaining a deeper understanding of their own vocation and a better understanding of the type of institutions they are working with); and applying these insights to future course work and career planning.

Using philosophical methodology, and with substantial attention to Catholic intellectual tradition, this course enquires into the foundations of ethics, including how our conception of the human person affects our understanding of the moral life. It considers also the question of the rationality of belief in God and the difference (if any) God makes to our understanding of the person and the good. In addressing these topics, the course develops and applies basic logic skills, introduced as an essential part of philosophical method and an indispensable tool of critical thinking.

It considers also the question of the rationality of belief in God and the difference (if any) God makes to our understanding of the person and the good. In addressing these topics, the course develops and applies basic logic skills, introduced as an essential part of philosophical method and an indispensable tool of critical thinking.

Alfred North Whitehead famously claimed that “[t]he safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.” Plato and Aristotle set the stage for nearly all of the philosophical systems—and battles—that come after them. We will work through texts of the Pre-Socratics, Plato, and Aristotle with a careful eye to their points of agreement and disagreement. These philosophers are searching for a comprehensive and rigorous understanding of reality, including the nature of human beings. Accordingly, the ancient Greeks turn their attention to a wide array of topics, such as metaphysics, physics, biology, politics, ethics, astronomy, and theology. We will give special attention to the development of substance metaphysics. Prerequisite: PHIL 110, 115 or 197.

In this course, we will read and analyze a representative sample of texts composed between the late 300's and early 1300's by authors such as Augustine, Anselm, and Aquinas. We will focus primarily on Christian authors, but will also read Islamic and Jewish philosophers. We will study many of the defining philosophical issues of the medieval period, such as the problem of universals, arguments for God’s existence, and the eternity of the world. We will pay particular attention to the differing conceptions of the relationship between faith and reason, which was one of the central themes permeating medieval philosophy. The diversity of positions that we will encounter on these issues, and others, will bring us into the lively intellectual debate that took place in the middle ages.

(2020 Core Planning Guide)

  Chris Toner

A philosophical examination into the origin, nature, purpose, and legitimacy of government and law, especially as these relate to the good of individuals and the common good. Possible questions include: Are human beings by nature political animals? What justifies political and legal authority? What sorts of political regimes can be just and legitimate? Is there a best type of government? Are there universal human rights and, if so, where do they come from? What are the respective roles of legislator, executive, and judge? Can civil disobedience ever be justified? Can violent revolution? Should government and law take stands on questions of morality, religion, and the meaning of life or try to remain neutral in these matters? The course will consider both classical and contemporary reflection on such topics, including from authors within Catholic intellectual tradition in conversation with other traditions and perspectives. Prerequisite: PHIL 110, 115 or 197.

This course will consider the ethical dimensions of human interaction with the environment. We will begin by considering what various philosophical perspectives have to say about the scope of and justification for our obligations concerning the environment. This will require that we think about who all (or what all) count as the proper objects of moral consideration. We will explore issues such as animal welfare, conservation, species preservation, climate change, population pressure, and sustainability, all with an eye toward deciding how individuals and communities should respond to the various environmental challenges we face today. To achieve these goals, the course will deal with both ethical theory and practical case studies. Prerequisite: PHIL 110, 115 or 197 or 214 or 215.

  Thomas Feeney

This course covers the development of philosophy during the 17th and 18th centuries, a period that witnessed upheaval in science, education, religion, and politics, as well as more subtle transformations in gender and family roles. Philosophers responded to these changes by replacing the previously dominant Aristotelian paradigm with a wide range of new approaches to knowledge, religion, morality, etc. We will read many sources, including figures well established in the philosophical canon (Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, Hume & Kant), well known figures from more general intellectual history (Galileo & Newton), and several women known to philosophy in their own time but neglected by 20th Century scholarship (Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia, Margaret Cavendish, Anne Conway & Emilie du Châtelet). Our focus will fall on two themes: the relationship between God and creation, and the meaning of suffering. We will put philosophical close-reading skills to work tracing these themes across the historical period. Prerequisite: PHIL 110, 115 or 197 and one other PHIL course.

This course is devoted to philosophical trends since the late 19th century (roughly, 1850- present). We’ll spend the first half of the semester studying three European “philosophers of suspicion,” Freud, Marx, and Nietzsche. In the second half of the semester we’ll then focus on the movement known as analytic philosophy, examining the contributions of recent analytic philosophers to areas such as philosophy of language, epistemology, philosophy of mind, and the free will debate. Prerequisite: PHIL 220.

  Mark Spencer

Contemporary philosophy began in 1781 with the publication of Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. In this course, we’ll consider the story of two questions that have been a major focus of philosophy since Kant's monumental book: What conditions affect our experience of the world? What is the nature of human subjectivity? Contemporary philosophers have considered how conditions like history, embodiment, sexuality, language, economic class, and culture shape our experience of the world and our subjectivity. The resulting theories have decisively influenced contemporary culture in secular society and in the Church: if we want to understand the ways we contemporary persons experience the world, then we must understand the story of philosophy since Kant. This course will focus on key short primary texts of philosophical schools such as German idealism, Neo-Thomism, phenomenology, and analytic philosophy, by philosophers including Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, de Beauvoir, Maritain, John Paul II, Stein, Russell, and Wittgenstein.

I bet you are reading this description with the hope of coming to know what this course is about. But what is knowledge, and how would we know we have it if we did? This course examines fundamental questions pertaining to the nature of knowledge, belief, and justification. Defining knowledge is much more difficult than we might think initially. When are we justified in believing? What counts as proof? We look to thinkers in the classical and contemporary analytic tradition to get some insight into these and related questions. Prerequisite: PHIL 220.

A careful examination of a number of philosophical arguments concerning the existence and attributes of God. We’ll start with a section on God’s nature, focusing on debates about the attributes of divine simplicity, immutability, and eternity and on God’s knowledge of the future. In the second section, we’ll consider reasons in favor of belief in God, beginning with a brief examination of Reformed Epistemology (the idea that belief in God can be rational even in the absence of good arguments for the existence of God), and then proceed to more detailed examinations of Pascal’s Wager, Cosmological arguments, Design arguments (especially the fine-tuning argument), and Moral arguments for the existence of God. Finally, in the third section, we’ll examine objections to the rationality of belief in God. We will briefly explore the problem of contingency for religious belief (if you were born elsewhere, elsewhen, your religious beliefs would probably have been very different) and the argument from divine hiddenness (if God existed, He would have made Himself obvious to all), and then turn to an in-depth examination of the problem of evil. Prerequisite: PHIL 220 and PHIL 365.

The highest branch of philosophy, and the branch of philosophy that most helps us reach our natural end as human persons, is natural theology or philosophy of God. In this course, we will consider some central issues in philosophy of God. The class will begin by considering arguments for the existence of God and other ways in which we can naturally know God, especially perceiving God by perceiving beauty. Next, we will turn to arguments regarding attributes of God that can be known by human reason, such as divine goodness, simplicity, and freedom. Finally, we will consider issues having to do with the relation between creatures and God, such as creation, conservation, providence, and predestination. We will read from Thomas Aquinas’ Summa theologiae and from authors in the non-Thomistic Catholic, analytic, Reformed, Byzantine, Hindu, and polytheistic traditions, as well as from those who object in various ways to theism. Writing a major paper and preparing for a public presentation will be a central focus of the course. Prerequisite: PHIL 220 and PHIL 365.
