THEO 5557 Catholicism & Social Responsibility (Fall: 3 )
This course explores the tradition of Catholic social thought and in its theoretical and lived forms. It probes the theological and moral foundations of social responsibility in the Catholic tradition and the relationship between the church and wider society. It then investigates the implications of the tradition’s core commitments (including solidarity, the option for the poor, human rights and responsibilities, the common good, peacemaking, ecological justice, and the dignity of work) for contemporary questions of justice.
