The Last Enemy: Death and the Christian Hope

Offered in Summer 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Particular attention will be paid to Christianity’s situating of death in an apocalyptic context, the death and resurrection of Jesus as the undoing of death, and the particular ways in which death is denied or eclipsed in modern liberal capitalism. We will also draw on literary sources, from the ancient Greeks to contemporary novels, to lend depth and texture to our study of “the last enemy.”  Lectures, seminar discussion, small groups. Class participation, précis, final paper.

Globalization / Social Justice / Eco-Justice

Offered in Summer 2010  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

"Globalization" is not an ethical issue.

With special reference to the growing chorus of diverse voices associated with the "anti-globalization" or "alternative globalization" movements, review of debates on key social justice and eco-justice issues (e.g., climate change, growing gaps between rich and poor, global security, biotechnologies). Implications for ethical views of human capacities to act on planetary scales, the most promising disciplines for channeling and constraining them, and the roles of Christian communities in nurturing moral subjects and shaping public debates. Readings, class participation, short papers, and (for AD students) research paper - adult learning process.
