Course descriptions:

CONTRIBUTIONS to POSTLIBERAL THEOLOGY: A NEW BEGINNING

As Pope Saint John Paul II claimed, the decisive character of all cultures is the way it is related to the greatest mystery, the mystery of God. The renewal of culture therefore implies a radical reconsideration of this fundamental relationship in all the dimensions of human existence.

This course would like to contribute to the discussion that began some sixteen years ago in Granada at the “Meetings for a New Beginning,” where Archbishop Javier Martínez Fernández brought together American Protestant theologians of various denominations, English Anglican theologians belonging to the Radical Orthodoxy movement, and Catholic theologians from America and Europe.

In times when faith is often reduced to a “personal matter,” people who still think that the Church represents hope for society, need to “reclaim the world by situating its concerns and activities within a theological framework” (Radical Orthodoxy manifesto). Thus, we invite you to listen to lectures that illuminate theology’s vital link to the natural and social sciences, politics, aesthetics, poetry, economy, and metaphysics. Our team of excellent professors will critically analyze the contemporary liberal view on certain key issues by demonstrating how revelation’s concrete implications and the Church’s rich heritage are as inspiring to us as ever when we seek to radically rethink current problems and renew our own lives.

WOJTYŁA and REALISTIC PHENOMENOLOGY

The aim of this course is to offer a clear and well-articulated line of reasoning in support of the relevance of John Paul II’s thought and testimony for Catholic Culture as well as for contemporary philosophy. The first part of this series of lectures, which are presented by an international team of experts in Wojtyła’s oeuvre, illuminates the realist phenomenological tradition by focusing on the sources of Wojtyła’s philosophy. A short introduction to Reinach, Stein, Conrad-Martius, and Scheler will help us to gain a broader perspective of the philosophical discussion in which Wojtyła was participating. As John Paul II, he would go on to introduce realist phenomenology into Church history by implementing its results and method into his own cultural and pastoral agenda. The second part of this course is dedicated to critically evaluating the amazingly rich legacy of John Paul II by concentrating on key issues like personalism, poetry, politics, the philosophy of religion, and more. To demonstrate the continuing influence of his philosophical and theological ideas, a special lecture is devoted to analyzing the continuity between the papacies of Pope Saint John Paul II and Pope Francis. The introduction and conclusion of this overview course is presented by Prof. Dr. Rocco Buttiglione, one of the top Wojtyła specialists and author of the now-classic volumes Il pensiero di Karol Wojtyła (1982) and Karol Wojtyła: The Thought of the Man Who Became Pope John Paul II (1997).
