Description: 

This course explores Christian Ethics as a discipline reflecting theologically upon the dynamic of moral thought, and uses the theological virtues of faith, love and hope as a prism through which to approach its material. The aim of the course is to enhance students' abilities in situating moral categories and argument within a theological context, drawing discerningly on resources in the tradition in moral enquiry, reflecting theologically upon the place of moral thinking in relation to the being
and work of God. Themes with which the class will engage include the self as agent, the nature of moral knowledge, the bearing of time, past, present and future, on the exercise of practical reason.
