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.

What makes a text a work of Catholic literature? How do Catholic writers struggle with the existential questions of meaning, purpose, or suffering in a unique fashion? How do the themes they engage—such as forgiveness, redemption, or the power of grace in the world—place them within the Catholic tradition? Is there a sacramental imagination or incarnational theology at the root of a work of Catholic literature? Such questions will be explored in a chronological framework through extensive readings of representative texts of Catholic literature in both English and translation from the medieval era through the present. In addition to satisfying a WAC Writing to Learn requirement and an Integrations in the Humanities requirement, this course also satisfies the Historical Perspectives requirement for English with Literature Emphasis and English with Creative Writing Emphasis majors, and a literature requirement for English with Professional Writing Emphasis majors. Finally, It also satisfies a 2XX Traditions requirement for Catholic Studies majors. This is a cross-listed course, with 10 seats on the ENGL side and 10 seats on the CATH side. Prerequisite: ENGL 121 or 190.

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 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 interdisciplinary course covers the periods of the Renaissance through the present day and continues the exploration of the relations between faith and culture begun in Catholic Thought and Culture I. We will engage select intellectual currents, political movements, historical developments, and modes of artistic expression as they affect and are affected by the broader Catholic tradition. Upon completion of both Catholic Thought and Culture I and II, students will have some grasp of the fascinating interaction of Gospel and culture marking Catholicism's development, demonstrated skills in the interpretation of literature and other art, and an appreciation for the continuity as well as the changes in Catholic thought and practice across time. Students will also have a broad sense of the contexts of the Catholic tradition, parts of which will then be filled in by other, more specific, courses in the program. NOTE: It is not required (though it is recommended) that students take CSMA 500 prior to taking CSMA 501.

In the effort to engage and understand the vitality and reality of Catholicism as it has influenced and shaped human thought and culture, we need to understand the common and unifying understanding of reality that is at the heart of Catholicism. This course is about the essential ideas that are so often implicit in the cultural expressions of Catholic life. It is something akin to learning a language in order to understand a culture; in this case, it is the language of doctrine to understand the thinking of the Church and the character of the cultures she informs.

To do this, we will read with some care the Catechism of the Catholic Church. To help us engage and reflect on faith in relation to Catholic thought and culture, we will read simultaneously with the Catechism one of the great novels of the twentieth century, Sigrid Undset’s Kristin Lavransdatter. The fundamental questions we will address are these: Does the language we learn in studying the Catechism, the language of the Church, help us to see and articulate what is going on in Kristin Lavransdatter? Do the particulars and circumstances of Kristin Lavransdatter help us think more deeply and precisely about the understanding of reality that is at the heart of the Church?

In some regards the 13th century was a barbarous age, pre-scientific and sometimes superstitious, torn by conflicts and wars. At the same time it was an era of magnificent intellectual and cultural achievement, a time in which cathedrals were built and universities founded. St Thomas Aquinas (1224-1274) was a man of his time but his work, like that of many of his contemporaries, transcended his century. Today Thomas is remembered principally for his Summa theologiae, the textbook on theology that he wrote for beginning students and for his numerous careful commentaries on the work of Aristotle, the Greek philosopher. Even so, as important as the Summa is, about a third of Thomas’s extant work consists of commentaries on Scripture. Another major portion of his work, much neglected, consists of efforts to defend the teachings of Catholicism against its critics, both internal and external. The focus of this course will be to explore critical elements of Thomas’s thinking as a theologian in three general areas: systematic theology, biblical commentary, and apologetics.

In the introduction to his book on the virtues, Romano Guardini writes: “There is one thing that Plato’s philosophy has made clear once and for all; he showed that absolute values exist, that these can be known and, therefore, that there is such a thing as truth. He likewise showed that these values are summed up in the majesty of that which we call “the Good”, which is identical with the divine and that its realization leads man to the perfection of life freedom and beauty.”

Such is the task of education – the formation of our vital powers and strivings, our inner world and outward surroundings. In short, it involves a formation and tuning of conscience within the antiphonal relation between nature and grace: to the Good, True, and Beautiful – the fabric from which nature is woven – and to Christ who wove it and who is our destiny.

To help us reflect upon this task, we will draw upon a range of Guardini’s writings, including Conscience; Freedom, Grace, & Destiny; selections from The World and the Person; The Lord; Learning the Virtues; The Church and the Catholic; and The Spirit of the Liturgy.

In this course, we will examine the interrelationships among the novelist, the novelist’s faith, and the audience. What does it mean to be a “Catholic novelist”? At what points are there conflicts between the demands of art and the demands of faith, and how may those conflicts be resolved? We’ll explore these and many related questions as we read the greatest Catholic writers of the modern era, including Dostoevsky, Mauriac, Greene, Waugh, and O’Connor.

This course takes an interdisciplinary look at a central figure in Catholicism—Mary, Mother of God. Drawing on philosophy, theology, poetry, music, and the visual arts, the course examines three key moments in Mary’s life as mother: the Annunciation, the Nativity, and the Stabat Mater. These culturally and historically diverse depictions of Mary set the stage for an investigation into the meaning of her role, within Catholicism as a whole and within the lives of individual Christians.

The aim of this course is to become familiar with the teachings of Benedict XVI. In front of the secularization of the contemporary world Benedict XVI proposes the via pulchritudinis of the theological virtues as ways to encounter the living Christ. According to Benedict XVI, the authentic Christian life is brought about through the encounter with Jesus Christ, who brings to fulfillment all the expectations and longings of the human person. Particular emphasis will be given to Benedict XVI’s encyclicals as they give us a profound look into the magisterial teaching of the Pope Emeritus. Students will also study and read other texts such as his addresses, speeches, and apostolic exhortations to have a synthetic grasp of the importance and relevance of Benedict XVI’s teaching for people of today.

What makes a text a work of Catholic literature? How do Catholic writers struggle with the existential questions of meaning, purpose, or suffering in a unique fashion? How do the themes they engage—such as forgiveness, redemption, or the power of grace in the world—place them within the Catholic tradition? Is there a sacramental imagination or incarnational theology at the root of a work of Catholic literature? Such questions will be explored in a chronological framework through extensive readings of representative texts of Catholic literature in both English and translation from the medieval era through the present. In addition to satisfying a WAC Writing to Learn requirement and an Integrations in the Humanities requirement, this course also satisfies the Historical Perspectives requirement for English with Literature Emphasis and English with Creative Writing Emphasis majors, and a literature requirement for English with Professional Writing Emphasis majors. Finally, It also satisfies a 2XX Traditions requirement for Catholic Studies majors. This is a cross-listed course, with 10 seats on the ENGL side and 10 seats on the CATH side. Prerequisite: ENGL 121 or 190.

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.

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.

Chinese philosophy embodies three ancient traditions: Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism. Both Confucianism and Daoism are indigenous to China while Buddhism was imported from India. This course will explore each of these three traditions as well as their interactions and influences on major periods of Chinese history. It will also consider the similarities and differences between “Chinese” and “Western” conceptions of philosophy. Prerequisite: PHIL 110 or PHIL 115 or PHIL 197.

Drawing on insights from philosophy as well as research from cognitive science, psychology, and behavioral economics, this course aims to help students learn to reason better. Emphasis is on inductive and probabilistic reasoning rather than on deductive logic (which is the focus in PHIL 220). Possible topics covered include cognitive biases to which humans are naturally subject, intellectual virtues that promote the attainment of truth, the nature of evidence, the assessment of the quality of an information source, inference to the best explanation, probabilistic reasoning, and decision-making under uncertainty and risk.

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? Prerequisite: PHIL 110 or PHIL 115 or PHIL 197.

Who has the authority to makes laws? What makes for good law? What is the connection between your earlier exploration in The Person and the Good, and these questions? What is justice? Can there be such a thing as private property? How are these ideas related to “the common good” that we keep hearing so much about? What notions of authority and justice have, in the real world, led to oppression and misery rather than human happiness? The course will consider both classical and contemporary reflection on these topics, including from authors within Catholic intellectual tradition in conversation with other traditions and perspectives. Prerequisites: PHIL 110 or 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 or PHIL 115 or PHIL 197.

What does it mean for something to be beautiful? Is beauty an objective property of things or is it entirely in the eye of the beholder? Are perceiving beauty, making beautiful things, and being beautiful essential to a flourishing human life? Should beauty be any more important to us than other aesthetic qualities like elegance, ugliness, horror, or being cool? What does it take for something to be a work of art? Do the answers to any of these questions have anything to do with God? In this class, we’ll talk about these questions and about some ways that philosophers have answered them. We’ll spend time discussing views from the ancient and medieval Catholic philosophical tradition. But we’ll spend most of the class discussing modern views, including some views on beauty and art from Indian and Japanese philosophy. Along the way, we’ll listen to some musical pieces, watch some films, and view some paintings that will help us better think about beauty and art. Our goal will be to come to a deeper appreciation of beauty and of its central role in a happy human life. Prerequisite: PHIL 110 or PHIL 115 or PHIL 197.

Natural theology is the project of arguing for the existence of God, and uncovering as much as possible about God’s nature, without relying on any putative supernatural revelation – instead relying on natural reason alone. In this course we will take a deep dive into the natural theology of St. Thomas Aquinas, by engaging in a close reading of Book 1 of his Summa contra Gentiles. We will also briefly explore work from contemporary analytic philosophers on the fine-tuning argument, reformed epistemology, the problem of evil, and Pascal’s Wager. The mode of instruction will alternate between seminar-style discussion (on Tuesdays) and Socratic lecture (on Thursdays). Prerequisite: PHIL 365.

We will also briefly explore work from contemporary analytic philosophers on the fine-tuning argument, reformed epistemology, the problem of evil, and Pascal’s Wager. The mode of instruction will alternate between seminar-style discussion (on Tuesdays) and Socratic lecture (on Thursdays). Prerequisite: 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 that discipline. The class will begin by discussing 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 think about 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 analytic, Reformed, Byzantine, 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 365.

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.

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. Prerequisite: PHIL 110 or PHIL 115 or PHIL 197, and one other PHIL course.

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 of our subjectivity. The resulting theories have decisively influenced contemporary culture in secular society and in the Church: if we want to understand how we contemporary persons experience the world, then we must understand the story of philosophy since Kant. This course will focus on 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, Fanon, 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.

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?

This course introduces students to central Christian claims by examining biblical and theological texts involving non-human spirits. Students learn how these texts provide religious communities with resources to grapple with and perennially reimagine the divine, the natural world, and the common good in human communities. The course emphasizes the role of communal discernment and Spirit-led interpretation of biblical text as religious communities seek ways to make ancient texts ever new.
