ADTH 1017 Introduction to Christian Theology II:Shaping Cultural Traditions (Spring: 4 )

Course Description

What does it mean to be good? Is it possible to be both good and happy, both good and successful? Is morality subjective or are there clear ways to regulate it? How can we balance the individual and the community in our moral struggles? This course examines eight traditions of morality and ethics: existentialist, utilitarian, Catholic, Protestant, Christian feminist, Black theology, rights theories, and Aristotle. Students apply classic and modern thinkers to contemporary ethical problems emphasizing current events and movies. Interactive discussion is emphasized, so students discover the sources of values that formed their lives and develop a perspective for themselves and their futures.
