Catholic Republic Class Description:
In this 14-week lecture course which closely follows the book Catholic Republic, I will evidence my claim that America, like all republics, must be crypto-Catholic in its intellectual heritage. Students will be given modest weekly reading assignments. Each week, lecture will cover 1/2 of one of the book’s seven chapters, which pages students will have read.
The first two weeks will cover: CHAPTER ZERO and its topic, the natural law. (Each of the following six chapters’ republican creatures will be shown to be a product of the distinctly Catholic natural law.)
The following two weeks will cover CHAPTER ONE and its topic, natural rights.
The following two weeks will cover CHAPTER TWO and its topic, subsidiarity.
The following two weeks will cover CHAPTER THREE and its topic, virtue ethics.
The following two weeks will cover CHAPTER FOUR and its topic, proper Christian humanism and Church-state rapport.
The following two weeks will cover CHAPTER FIVE and its topic, the family economy.
The following two weeks will cover CHAPTER SIX and its topic, proper science and technology.
Each lesson will demonstrate how its topic/creature cannot self-consistently be explicated from a secular-left (ie Enlightenment) or a religious-right (ie Protestant) perspective—but only a Catholic one.
