Reconsidering Kant's Aesthetics

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Until recently, it was customary to regard Kant as the thinker who gave definitive form to the notion of aesthetic judgment and who succeeded in explaining why aesthetic experience is something essentially distinct from other kinds of experience. The postmodern rejection of the practice of aesthetic theory, however, has done much to undermine Kant's position vis-a-vis the arts. This course aims to re-examine Kant's aesthetic theory from the vantage point of the art theoretical literature that preceded it. In an effort to better understand Kant's contribution to the history of thought about art, it will seek to contextualize such "Kantian" themes as judgment, taste, genius, beauty, sublimity and purposiveness. It will also consider to what degree our understanding of Kant has been shaped by later modernist assumptions about the character of his contribution.

Missional Spirituality

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

A missional spirituality is, "an attentive and active engagement of embodied love for God and neighbour expressed from the inside out." (Helland and Hajalmarson, 2011). In modern spiritualties the interior life of personal devotion is emphasised. A needed corrective is our recovery of the outward movement of God into the world: missio Dei. The life of devotion and mission are inseparable. We are formed by the Spirit in community for the sake of others, where inner life both forms and feeds mission. Requirements include book reviews, a reflective journal, and an integrative paper.

Advanced Topics in Medieval Liturgy

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Against the backdrop of revived enthusiasm for "Traditional Latin Liturgy” in parts of the Catholic Church in recent years, this course will invite students to a deep engagement with the historical processes that transformed the loosely organized local liturgical traditions of early medieval Rome and Gaul into a sophisticated pan-European rite.  Close study of the various annual cycles of prayers, readings and chants of the Mass and Divine Office, along with the external religious and political pressures that shaped their development over time, will be combined with an investigation of how liturgists and ordinary worshippers of different periods during the Middle Ages interpreted their liturgies as a unified system that both expressed theological truth and was itself a fitting object of theological reflection.

Prerequisites: an introductory course on medieval liturgy (e.g. TRH 3725HS or MST 3501F); basic knowledge of the Latin language (such as could be acquired by taking SAJ 1501HY or MST 1000Y); and the ability to make use of secondary literature in either French or German (for research towards the final course paper).

God, History and Human Nature in the 19th Century

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2012 · 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.

At its promptings we will explore specific congregational leadership issues including, planning, assessing resources, drawing forth, developing and changing volunteer leadership, mission, building vision and making change, recognizing and nurturing what gives a community life, coping with the reality of communal death, and above all, the life and death risk of traveling with the living God.
