Description:

Join one of Catholicism’s leading living philosophers in exploring the great minds who tackled the universe’s biggest questions. Award-winning professor Fr. Harry J. Gensler, SJ, a leading authority on Catholic philosophy, introduces you to the thinkers whose ideas and faith shaped history. From antiquity to the Information Age, humankind has grappled with big questions. Pondering issues such as the problem of evil, the coexistence of faith and reason, and the mystery of creation is what makes us human. This fascinating audio course takes you through two millennia of a rich philosophical tradition. You’ll encounter giants like Augustine and Aquinas as well as lesser-known minds whose wisdom will enlighten you in equal measure. First, you’ll explore the Bible and works by Greek philosophers whose ideas influenced Christian thinkers. Moving chronologically, you’ll then see how schools of Catholic thought built upon each other throughout the centuries. As you journey through the Patristic Era, the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment, and into the modern day, you’ll explore questions about prayer, suffering, and the ultimate destiny of humankind. Although Catholic philosophers differed in their approaches, they shared common beliefs in God, free will, and morality. Above all, they believed in the compatibility of faith and reason. As you meet these great philosophers, you will deepen your understanding of human nature and life’s ultimate questions.
