Main themes
In order to achieve the objectives defined above, the instructor critically presents some central themes that are a question for ethics in terms of their connexion with the Christian faith. In this sense, he/she proposes a reflection about ethical choices and their justifications, about human beings in the world, about Christ and the way of life proposed in the Scriptures. The basic consciousness of the plurality of religious and laic approaches protects the discourse from close-mindedness, opening it to different traditions and to other approaches.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :


By the end of this course, the student should be able: - to confront him/herself in a personal and critical way with the topic of the course, and to argue his/her position, showing that he/she is conscious of the complexity of the questions at stake, also when confronted with various philosophical and religious traditions. - to clarify the fundamental categories of reflection on ethics and to show how these notions stand out when confronted with the experience of faith and with Christian reflection.

The teacher will present the general principles of fundamental ethics and the links of which with christian faith. Through different concepts, among wich liberty, conscience and the human person, the teacher will tackle critically reflections on ethic decisions which a human being has to face today. In a pluralistic world of which we are an integral part, taking an ethic decision implies open-mindedness to different religious, cultural and social points of view in order to avoid the pitfall of a moralizing and unilateral position.
