I hope students at DSPT get both a global view to provide context for philosophical problems and a microscopic lens to dissect particular topics. By the end of their program, I expect students to be knowledgeable about how the philosophical tradition relates to contemporary research and to feel competent to continue the philosophical discussion with a personal contribution.
As a historian of Medieval Christianity, my great love has been the religious culture of medieval Italy. I spent two years in Bologna, Italy, doing the research for my first book - an experience which left me with an abiding love of Italians and all things Italian, especially the food, history and culture.
We hold that philosophy and theology are two facets of a single conversation, taking into account both the insights that are discovered by human reason and those that are only accessible to us as they are revealed in Scripture and tradition.
Our programs allow you to integrate the fine arts with philosophy and theology in three areas of concentration: Religion and the Arts, Sacred Arts and Aesthetics.
Our Faculty value the necessary and fruitful partnership between philosophy and theology, creating a communal learning environment suffuse with this interdisciplinary approach.
This class is designed to present a survey of some of the twentieth-century Thomists, and examine the development of the thought of St. Thomas in dialogue with the challenges of modernity and the problems of contemporary society.
