PHIL 7779 Christian Philosophy: Advanced Seminar (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This seminar will ask whether or under what conditions "Christian philosophy" is not the "square circle" alleged by Martin Heidegger. We will sharpen this question through a preliminary study of the early 20th century debate over it and then move into a close reading of J.Y. Lacoste, Experience and the Absolute. The inquiry will also require frequent attention to works by Heidegger, Bonhoeffer, Hegel, and John of the Cross.

Instructor(s): Jeffrey Bloechl

Prerequisites: For advanced MA students and Ph.D. students; familiarity with the philosophy of Heidegger, and some basic Christian theology.
