For present purposes, an aporia is a set of propositions each member of which has a strong claim on our acceptance, but whose members are collectively inconsistent.

Experience in the Moral Realm (V): Two Supernaturalists

Stefan Heßbrüggen-Walter.

“The two authors to be discussed now introduce a new problem into the debate: the role of the ‘supernatural’ in moral education. First, it is interesting to note that both arrive at similar conclusions, although they belong to different denominations: Peter Martyr Vermigli is an important figure in Reformed theology. Pedro Serrano taught philosophy at the Catholic university of Alcalá de Henares and published biblical commentaries (more information here). In spite of this difference in background, both agree in their commentaries on the Nicomachean ethics that revelation is the most powerful tool for teaching morality. Moral philosophy is a complement of moral theology (Vermigli) or even completely superfluous (Serrano). Correspondingly, experience has either a limited role (Vermigli) or it is irrelevant, because moral insights rely only on our rational capabilities (Serrano)”.

Essay on the importance of understanding the history of the humanities | Inside Higher Ed

Essay on the importance of understanding the history of the humanities | Inside Higher Ed | Theology | Scoop.it

The first distinguished speaker at the recent forum on "Justifying the Humanities" followed a recent trend by asserting that the humanities were invented in the American university of the 1930s as an organizational convenience. The second distinguished speaker explained that in their current "somewhat dated" form the humanities are a product of the Cold War, developed in the 1950s through courses in the Great Books and Western Civilization. By the time the final distinguished speaker began his remarks I feared that we would be told the humanities were invented yesterday in sudden meta-post-Postmodernist fabrication.

First, the good news. It is true that the familiar triadic American curricular structure of liberal education (natural science, social science and the humanities) is relatively recent. Hence, the form of humanistic studies is not chiseled in ancient marble, but has changed and can and should continue to change in response to new circumstances.   

The bad news is that recent history is only a small part of the story. The foreshortening perspective on the humanities comes at a price. It’s not just that it overlooks a tradition that reaches back to the Stoic philosophers of ancient Greece, Cicero in ancient Rome, Petrarch and Boccaccio in Italy and the amazing scholars of the Renaissance. Nor is it just that we deprive ourselves of the benefits of breakthroughs in contemporary scholarship. It’s that we risk losing sight of what motivated the great era of humanism.

Renaissance humanists, such as Joseph Justus Scaliger, Marsilio Ficino and Lorenzo Valla, applied immense energy and learning to establishing reliable texts of ancient authors, commenting on them, making them accessible through translations, and teaching them in a way that created an understanding of human beings and moral agency not restricted by the dictates of medieval theology. Philosophy, literature, history and the visual arts were transformed by such humanism. Soon universities were transformed as well.

Ethics in the NFL » First Thoughts | A First Things Blog

Junior Seau, arguably one of the NFL’s greatest linebackers ever to play the game, shot himself in the chest yesterday. This follows on a series of recent suicides of NFL players Dave Duerson, Terry Long, and Andre Waters. To this, Charles Camosy at Catholic Moral Theology asks: “When will we seriously debate the ethics of supporting American football?”
