This course studies fundamental questions of good and evil and human happiness by engaging the answers given by philosophers, saints, and ordinary men and women throughout human history. Students will learn how to analyze and judge between different theories, and to see their real implications by applying them to current issues. Special attention will be paid to the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas and the Catholic intellectual tradition as summarized in Veritatis Splendor. Offered in the spring semester by Dr. Murray.
Time & Location TBA in Spring Semester
