THIS COURSE IS FULL.
Through a close reading of Love and Responsibility, the class will study Karol Wojtyla’s philosophical approach to sexual ethics, one established through a phenomenological analysis of sexual attraction, love, male and female differences, shame, and chastity, among other topics. We shall then see how the personalistic norm provides a philosophical backbone for the Catholic Church’s teaching on sexual ethics, especially contraception. Love and Responsibility is the philosophical counterpart to the Theology of the Body.
