Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

Can properly theological ways of thinking and acting allow us to attend and respond to concrete challenges and problems confronting the world today?

In particular, we will engage this material with a particular view to questions of concreteness, embodiment, and identity.   Download Course Guide
