Courses » PHIL 501: Philosophical Themes of Catholic Theology


This course intends to provide the graduate student with a basic understanding of the nature of philosophy, of its early development in Ancient Greece and of its vital importance in the genesis of Christian thought and theology. The student will be led through a quick excursus of Greek philosophy with a special emphasis on the teachings of Aristotle, so that he may understand and appreciate that every natural truth attained through the correct use of reason alone, is both compatible with and ancillary to the Revealed Truth, since God’s Word is the One Source of both the path of reason and the path of faith.
