PHIL 359 Topics in Christian Philosophy: Philosophy and Theology after the Holocaust

Is philosophy and theology possible after the Holocaust? That is, can thought and faith do justice to this event and its victims? By carefully studying and engaging with texts by the Jewish philosopher Emil Fackenheim, and most notably with his magnum opus To Mend the World, this course will at once provide an introduction to foundational issues of contemporary continental philosophy while exposing us to the demand of the Holocaust in order to think through the possibility of philosophical, political and inter-faith dialogue in the face of postmodern fragmentation.
