Dip into the thinking of St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine and Alexis de Tocqueville in this 3-session class.
North Carolina’s Belmont Abbey College is offering a free online mini-class featuring the work of Catholic philosophers St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine and Alexis de Tocqueville.
Titled “Truth and Knowledge,” the course is taught by author and professor Dr. Joshua Hren and Belmont Abbey College Honors College Dean Dr. Joseph Wysocki.
According to an announcement from the college, the course will take a “fly-over” view of these three Catholic philosophers. In the spirit of Belmont Abbey College’s Benedictine tradition, students will be invited to pursue questions such as:
Is knowledge always good?
What is the difference between curiosity and studiousness and why does it matter?
What impact does democracy have on our souls?
Does our pursuit of perfection prevent us from dedicating the necessary time and energy to the quiet meditation and contemplation required for the right ordering of our souls?
