Seminar: Love and Justice


This seminar will analyze classical and current theological perspectives on love and justice in order to understand areas of conceptual overlap and tensions between these norms. We will read selections from Augustine, Aquinas, Kierkegaard, C.S. Lewis, Anders Nygren, H. Richard and Reinhold Niebuhr, as well as recent discussions by Nicholas Wolterstorff (Reformed) and David Hollenbach (Catholic). In light of that theoretical discussion, the seminar will then focus on several concrete ethical issues that pose challenges of application for love and justice as useful norms.
