THEO 8505 Natural Law (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course examines Thomas Aquinas's natural law doctrine in some detail, considering both the "treatise on law" and its larger doctrinal context within the Summa Theologiae. It then discusses modern philosophical and theological criticisms of natural law, the revival of natural law in the twentieth century, and current attempts to adapt natural law theory to questions raised in philosophy, theology (particularly divine command theory), and evolutionary theory.
