Contemporary Moral Problems Related to Sexuality

This course studies moral problems related to sexuality, their various contexts and their possible resolutions from the perspective of Christian life. Karol Wojtyla’s “Love and Responsibility”

Even before he assumed the papacy, Karol Wojtyla had already produced a remarkably eloquent and cogent defense of Catholic tradition in the sphere of family life and sexual morality. His major work, Love and Responsibility (1960), drawn from his own pastoral experiences as a priest and bishop, and based on his Christian Personalism, contains his philosophico-theological persuasions on the sexual self-realization of the human person.

This course is a systematic attempt at an understanding and appreciation of the mind of the Personalist philosopher who became Pope John Paul II. It will explore his life and times, especially mindful of the significant influences that shaped his thinking, examine in depth his aforementioned opus as the result of what he calls “an incessant confrontation of doctrine with life,” and enable the students to engage in meaningful discussions on the moral issues which Wojtyla addressed and which have remained controversial even in our time.
