THE 547 Dignity, Rights, and Duties: The Many Facets of the Human Person

The Catholic Church has made a unique contribution to developing and fostering the concept of human dignity (to which nations subscribe in "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights"). This course examines the biblical and systematic-theological roots of human dignity and the many interpretations it has had since World War II. Because what we say theologically about the human person has direct implications for our interactions with others at the personal and communal levels, students in this course will, of necessity, address the relationship between systematic theology and everyday life.
