GSP 201 - The Community


This course focuses on a fundamental principle of Catholic Social Teaching - how we organize our society in economics and politics, in law and policy and how this organization directly affects human dignity and the capacity of individuals to grow in community. Through the study of some key social and historical periods around the globe, and by looking at some social and cultural forms as expressed in literature, art, politics, and economics among other areas students will pose and explore these essential questions: How do economic and political systems help or hinder human being? What is the relationship of literature and art to political systems? What do political and economic systems and the literature and art that challenge and support these systems reveal about the nature of human community?
