God, History and Human Nature in the 19th Century

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In the 17th century, the thinkers of the Scientific Revolution were looking for explanations of the physical world that were valid everywhere and for all time. In the 18th century, Enlightenment thinkers were also looking for universally valid explanations—but for human nature, morality and society. That all changed in the 19th century when thinkers realized that the contingency and mutability of existence make once-and-for-all answers impossible. Come find out how Hegel, Kierkegaard, Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche and Freud changed the way we look at the world forever. We will consider the thinkers’ ideas both in their historical context and in light of their implications for our own thinking about human nature, society, history, morality and God. Lectures, discussions, on-line questions. Two 6-8 page papers; class participation; on-line questions; final exam.

Hans Urs von Balthasar

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2010 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Inspiring and profound are terms often attributed to the theology of von Balthasar.

There is consideration of the Trilogy: Herrlichkeit, Theo-Drama and Theo-Logic; the influence of Ignatius Loyola and Adrienne von Speyr; and the place of Mary.

Muslim Comparative Theologies: Sunni-Shi'i Doctrinal Development

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The seminar will undertake to study the comparative Sunni and Shi’ite theologies (‘ilm al-kalam) to underscore a historical development of Muslim creed in the context of social and political conditions. The course will concentrate on the development of Muslim Theology in general and the Sunni and Shi’ite creeds in particular. It will primarily be a comparative theological study, and secondarily Sunni-Shi’i doctrinal analysis. The major concern will be the development of creeds in Islam, the gradual process of formulating Principles of Religion (usul al-din), and their crystallization in the form of dogmas, with theological complexities. The essential difference between the Sunni and Shi’ite schools of thought begins in their emphasis on the fundamentality of leadership for the continuation of the prophetic mission. This difference also leads to their classification of the founding principles of Islam. While the Sunnites have insisted on a communal consensus regarding the centrality the community’s adherence to the Tradition for the continuation of the mission, the Shi’ites have regarded the ongoing need for authoritative guidance following the Prophethood, that is, the Imamate on rational-scriptural grounds.  The Sunnites have rejected the latter necessity on rational grounds. There is, however, agreement among all Muslims that three doctrines constitute the faith of Islam: Unity of God, Prophethood of Muhammad, and the Final Day of Judgment.  The Shi’ites add to these three two other doctrines: the Justice of God and the Imamate of the rightful successors of the Prophet. The Shi`a-Sunni differences have also impacted the development of juridical principles and ethical epistemologies based on the relationship between reason and revelation.

The Politics of Forgiveness

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The concept of forgiveness is currently garnering much attention in the areas of ethics and social-political philosophy. It is both advocated and challenged as an alternative to justice as law, or to typical forms of legal justice and punishment. This course, while addressing current and practical discussions of the place of forgiveness in politics, will also dig more deeply into what could perhaps be called the “social-ontological” meaning of forgiveness, one that Hegel develops, for instance, to explain the relationship between individuals and the social body. We will read selections from the work of Hegel, Arendt, Jankélévitch, Derrida and Ricoeur.

Hans Urs von Balthasar

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2010 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Inspiring and profound are terms often attributed to the theology of von Balthasar. Benedict XVI said of his work, "His theological reflection maintains intact, to this day, a profound timeliness and leads many to penetrate ever more into the profoundity of the mystery of faith". This course begins an exploration of his work. There is consideration of the Trilogy: Herrlichkeit, Theo-Drama and Theo-Logic; the influence of Ignatius Loyola and Adrienne von Speyr; and the place of Mary. Not a course for the faint-hearted, von Balthasar's work is at times dense and complex but the rewards are beyond price. Prerequisite: one year of theology, at least three theology courses. Lectures, seminar discussions, student presentations, one short paper and a research paper.

Systematic Theology: Past, Present, and Future

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2007 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Systematic theology has often been an attempt to develop a theology for all times and all places. But systematic thinking can also be consciously situated in history. In time, our web of beliefs may become reconfigured and re-centred. This course will read selections of Calvin’s Institutes alongside a contemporary text in systematic theology (focussing on areas such as Divine sovereignty, election, grace and self-knowledge) in order to stimulate our own reflections on the best way to develop a theology in and for today.

Muslim Comparative Theologies: Sunni-Shi'i Doctrinal Development

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The seminar will undertake to study the comparative Sunni and Shi’ite theologies (‘ilm al-kalam) to underscore a historical development of Muslim creed in the context of social and political conditions. The course will concentrate on the development of Muslim Theology in general and the Sunni and Shi’ite creeds in particular. It will primarily be a comparative theological study, and secondarily Sunni-Shi’i doctrinal analysis. The major concern will be the development of creeds in Islam, the gradual process of formulating Principles of Religion (usul al-din), and their crystallization in the form of dogmas, with theological complexities. The essential difference between the Sunni and Shi’ite schools of thought begins in their emphasis on the fundamentality of leadership for the continuation of the prophetic mission. This difference also leads to their classification of the founding principles of Islam. While the Sunnites have insisted on a communal consensus regarding the centrality the community’s adherence to the Tradition for the continuation of the mission, the Shi’ites have regarded the ongoing need for authoritative guidance following the Prophethood, that is, the Imamate on rational-scriptural grounds.  The Sunnites have rejected the latter necessity on rational grounds. There is, however, agreement among all Muslims that three doctrines constitute the faith of Islam: Unity of God, Prophethood of Muhammad, and the Final Day of Judgment.  The Shi’ites add to these three two other doctrines: the Justice of God and the Imamate of the rightful successors of the Prophet. The Shi`a-Sunni differences have also impacted the development of juridical principles and ethical epistemologies based on the relationship between reason and revelation.

The Politics of Forgiveness

Offered in Winter 2012  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The concept of forgiveness is currently garnering much attention in the areas of ethics and social-political philosophy. It is both advocated and challenged as an alternative to justice as law, or to typical forms of legal justice and punishment. This course, while addressing current and practical discussions of the place of forgiveness in politics, will also dig more deeply into what could perhaps be called the “social-ontological” meaning of forgiveness, one that Hegel develops, for instance, to explain the relationship between individuals and the social body. We will read selections from the work of Hegel, Arendt, Jankélévitch, Derrida and Ricoeur.
