The course is designed to:
- Familiarize students with Karol Wojtyla’s (John Paul II) philosophical project of linking the subjective and objective world views.
- Introduce students to the main themes of the 129 addresses that constitute John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body.”
- Encourage students to integrate the principles of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body in their own personal lives and relationships.
- Equip students to apply John Paul II’s “adequate anthropology” to a range of questions such as sexual morality, bio-ethics, gender issues, vocation, the sacramental life, and the new evangelization.
