Semester I
thursday 14:30 - 16:15


This course is the first of a two-semester sequence in which we will examine what it means to be human. During the first semester, we will explore a Thomistic account of human nature, examining as well ancient accounts of human nature in the thought of Plato and Aristotle, as well as parallel considerations in Chinese thought (i.e. Mencius).
