Description
Information
From the origin of universities through their first six hundred years of existence, philosophy and theology were the central disciplines. That changed dramatically in the nineteenth century. As German universities started to establish chairs in mathematics, chemistry, and philology, new academic departments became more distinct and religious issues formerly addressed gradually receded into the background. This book focuses on religious issues relating to current academic disciplines. Contributors draw upon insights from two theological essays to address religious themes, especially Catholic ones, pertinent to their discipline as it is taught on the undergraduate level. In addition to Catholic anthropology and theology, the chapters address Catholic issues in English literature, philosophy, political theory, history, mathematics, biology, physics and astronomy, psychology, environmental studies, art, music, business and economics, education, medicine, and law.
