Christianity and Society

The course investigates the interaction of philosophical and theological approaches in social ethics by analysing current concepts and theories of justice (Rawls, Habermas and Ricoeur) and their philosophical and theological critiques. The aim is to be able to distinguish different understandings of justice, the common good, human rights, and recognition that have arisen in modernity and are now debated in a multicultural global society.
