Inhoud
Building on the foundations given in moral theology I we will address the importance of grace for right human action, and the specificity of Christian ethics in light of the Sermon on the Mount. We will also acknowledge the reality of sin, as the disruption of and impediment for this action. The major part of the course address developments in society and technological progress, which continues to raise questions on what constitutes right action. In the section devoted to special moral theology we discuss a number of relevant themes including medical action at the beginning and end of human life, racism, sexual ethics and ecology.
