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.

This course examines the topics of sex, gender, and Catholicism at various points of intersection. Drawing on a variety of Catholic and non-Catholic historical, philosophical, and literary lenses on these topics, this course gives special attention to under-represented voices, as well as to the teachings, practices, and institutional reality of the Catholic Church. Readings may cover topics such as friendship, sexuality, priestly ordination, marriage, erotic desire, parenthood, and more. Readings offer an opportunity to examine preconceptions, stereotypes, and assumptions surrounding these topics. Attention is also given to the exercise of power (including institutional power, and power based on gender), both historically and in contemporary culture. This course aims to deepen, diversify, and inform students’ imaginations on these topics and their connection to diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Prerequiste: CATH 101.

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. Prerequisites: ENGL 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.

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.

This interdisciplinary course begins exploration of the relations between [Catholic Christian] faith and culture exhibited through works of imagination and intellect drawn from the New Testament through medieval periods. As part of the M.A. program core curriculum, the course focuses on the multifaceted Catholic tradition but includes perspectives from Christians of other denominations and non-Christians selected to show the dialogue between Catholic thought and other cultural views and accomplishments. Primary attention will be given to works of literature, music, and art, with some attention to philosophical and theological works selected especially for their contributions to articulating insights concerning the relationship between faith and culture.

Called by the Church historian, Jaroslav Pelikan, “the most important theological thinker of modern times,” Cardinal Newman is perhaps best known for his work on university education. His most significant intellectual work, however, was in the area of development of doctrine, the relations of faith and reason, and the role of authority and conscience in the life of the Church. This course considers the contemporary relevance of Newman’s thought in each of these areas and examines his sermons and devotional writings, works which led T. S. Eliot to refer to Newman as one of the two greatest homilists in the English language.

St. Augustine’s Confessions is one of the most enduring and influential works of Christian literature, one that speaks about the relation between God and man in an unprecedented way. Augustine makes his confession to God by telling the story of his life, and he casts the mysteries of theology in terms of his own experience. As we explore the philosophical, theological, and literary dimensions of this remarkable work, we will consider the particulars of Augustine’s story and the way those particulars set the stage for Augustine’s reflection on creatures and their Creator, memory and time, and sin and grace.

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.

Shakespeare's Christian Imagination

This course will examine Shakespeare’s use of Christian imagery and theology across four of his most enduring plays: King Lear, Othello, The Winter’s Tale, and The Tempest. We will supplement our close reading and discussion of Shakespeare’s text with some recent scholarly treatments of Shakespeare’s engagement with the Christian tradition. Our aim is to gain a better appreciation for the catholic Christian context and components of Shakespeare’s dramatic artistry.

This course introduces students to qualitative research theories, methods, and techniques focused on representing voices of women, people of color, people in poverty and others that are marginalized or excluded from dominant culture. Specifically, students will gain familiarity with the qualitative social science methods of interviews, ethnography, documentary research, and focus groups. Throughout the course, students will be guided through the process of designing and conducting their own unique research projects meanwhile learning from ongoing research with their instructors and partner organizations. In addition to training in data collection techniques, analysis, and varied epistemologies, the course thoroughly explores the ethics of research with marginalized communities and the ways in which research can and does relate to social change. Together, participants in this course will co-create a teaching/learning community wherein we all critically analyze and respectfully value each person’s individual and particular contributions as well as our diverse understandings of social reality and how we position ourselves in the multiple worlds in which we live and work.

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.

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.

In this course we will consider some of the central figures and questions of ancient (Western) philosophy. We will begin with some of the most important pre-Socratic philosophers, but the majority of the course will concentrate on Plato and Aristotle. Our main goal will be to gain a basic familiarity with the overall philosophical outlook of each of these two pillars of Western thought. Prerequisite: PHIL 110, PHIL 115, or PHIL 197

This course is a comprehensive introduction to the most pressing issues and questions concerning disability. Students will encounter and critically evaluate longstanding stereotypes and biases about the disadvantages of disability. This course examines disability primarily from a philosophical perspective, yet readings from other disciplines will also be used throughout the course. Some of the central questions examined in the course include: What is disability? Is disability merely a medical condition? In what ways do societal barriers disable? How does economic class impact access to educational, medical and social resources? Does disability itself make a person worse off, or is it only social stigmatization and lack of accommodation that makes the lives of those with disabilities worse? How have those with disabilities been disadvantaged in the US? What is the basis for human dignity? What conceptual frameworks allow us to uphold the dignity of those with severe disabilities? Which behaviors and assumptions threaten the equality and dignity of those with disabilities? Prerequisites: PHIL 110, PHIL 115, or PHIL 197

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, PHIL 115, or PHIL 197; and Honors

Many religions, including Christianity, ask people to have faith that God exists and has acted in human history. Yet it often seems more reasonable to doubt that religious claims are true. In this course, we will consider whether it can be reasonable to have faith in religious claims and how doubt can help a person come to a more mature faith. We will first consider the nature of faith, especially in the contemporary world where many religions are rapidly changing, and new forms of religious commitment are emerging. We will then consider two significant challenges to religious faith. First, in light of modern scientific findings (especially the theory of evolution), can it be reasonable to believe that God exists, created the world, and has intervened in history? Second, in the face of widespread horrendous suffering and moral evil, can it be reasonable to believe that a good God exists and cares for human beings? Special attention will be paid to the suffering that results from the experience of finding the world to be ultimately meaningless. Prerequisites: PHIL 110, PHIL 115, or PHIL 197

Explore and analyze ethical issues related to clinical and social aspects of medicine—both from the perspective of Catholic intellectual tradition and from other philosophical perspectives. For example, what is the primary role of a medical practitioner: to give the “customer” what s/he wants, or to promote a more objective standard of health? Under what conditions should a physician or nurse be allowed to opt out of doing work that violates his or her conscience? Is euthanasia ethically acceptable, and should it be legally permitted? And (how) should we provide medical care to those who cannot afford to pay for it? Prerequisites: PHIL 110, PHIL 115, or PHIL 197

By the end of the early modern period (1600-1800), academic philosophers had largely rejected the Christian Aristotelianism of the medieval Scholastics in favor of the "Enlightenment" tradition of Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz (the Continental Rationalists), Locke, Berkeley, and Hume (the British Empiricists), and Kant (whose "transcendental idealism" was an attempt to overcome certain basic shortcomings of Rationalist and Empiricist systems). Enlightenment philosophy's critique of a range of traditional beliefs concerning the human person and human knowledge has profoundly shaped contemporary society. Acquaintance with its main points is indispensable to a thorough understanding of modernity's achievements and defects. Prerequisites: PHIL 110, PHIL 115, or PHIL 197; and one other PHIL course

This course does a deep dive into the competing philosophies that drive political polarization, generate clashing laws, and divide countries. Is there a way to heal these divisions? Our investigation proceeds historically so that we can evaluate those arguments that have shaped and continue to shape American and European societies. Particular attention will be paid to the philosophical tensions between communism, liberalism, and the Catholic intellectual tradition. Key questions include whether contemporary social justice issues both within America and across the globe require the development of a new political philosophy and whether a healthy political philosophy necessarily embraces democracy, limitation of government power, belief in God, living wages, a participatory common good, and individual rights. Main texts: Princeton Readings in Political Thought: Essential Texts since Plato, 2nd Edition, edited by Cohen and Fermon; Essential Works of Marxism edited by Arthur P. Mendel; The Social and Political Philosophy of Jacques Maritain and Reflections on America by Jacques Maritain; Multiculturalism and “The Politics of Recognition” by Charles Taylor; and a Course Packet.

This course will focus on some major questions in metaphysics and natural philosophy. We will approach these topics from two different perspectives: the Aristotelian-Thomistic perspective and the contemporary analytic perspective. Some issues we will discuss include: metaphysical composition of material objects and their persistence conditions; the analysis of compositional, qualitative, and substantial change; possibility and necessity; causation; the nature of time; and the problem of universals.

We will approach these topics from two different perspectives: the Aristotelian-Thomistic perspective and the contemporary analytic perspective. Some issues we will discuss include: metaphysical composition of material objects and their persistence conditions; the analysis of compositional, qualitative, and substantial change; possibility and necessity; causation; the nature of time; and the problem of universals. Prerequisite: PHIL 220

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

This section explores the foundational claim in Christian theology that creation is brought into existence and sustained by a Creator, a claim that informs Catholic intellectual tradition and social teaching. We will consider questions such as: Does God care about how human beings treat creation? What guidance does scripture offer for how we ought to live on this planet? Is environmental destruction, such as the climate crisis, the result of human sin, or part of God's plan to bring about the end of the world? What are the implications of the conviction that God became human and lived on Earth? Can and ought theologians and scientists work together to overcome environmental problems? How is love of neighbor and commitment to the common good tied to care for creation?

What is the significance of the cross for Christians? In light of systematic injustice in our world—where is God and who might we be for one another?

Today’s world is very different from the one in which the biblical texts were composed. How can today’s reader find meaning in these ancient texts? This course will help to bridge the gap between the world of the texts and today’s world, especially in terms of differing value systems and differing understandings of the natural world. Furthermore, a growing religious pluralism is a part of today’s world, and so the Bible and the Christian tradition will be examined as parts of a larger matrix of cultures and religions. Finally, in bridging today’s world with the texts the course will identify, in the latter, resources that can be drawn on in working for the common good.

This course introduces students to foundational concepts and skills associated with Christian theology. The course reflects critically upon the concepts of God and Christ, Scripture, Faith and Reason, the Human Being, and the Common Good, especially in the context of Catholic Intellectual Tradition and Catholic Social Teaching. Students will gain a basic level of theological literacy through introduction to central texts within Christian tradition, particularly the Bible. Students will also be introduced to connecting fundamental theological questions to the common good in the context of the pressing challenges of today’s world.
