Aims, contents and method of the course

The well known US American theologian and religous sister Margaret Farley has presented a new and widely recognised approach to sexual ethics from a Christian (not primarily catholic) perspective. Beyond natural law she develops her ideas on the basis of a consistent personal anthropology (human person as embodied mind and freedom) and aims for a just and lifegiving way of living one's sexuality.
In this seminar we will read and discuss Farleys ideas.
