Taught by Dr. Janet Smith

THIS COURSE IS FULL.

Course Description:

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.

Instructor:
Janet E. Smith, Ph.D., holds the Father Michael J. McGivney Chair of Life Ethics at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit. She is an acclaimed author, regular columnist and blogger, and has appeared on various television shows. More than two million copies of her talk, “Contraception: Why Not” have been distributed.
