The Challenge of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition

Making a Difference in Contemporary Academic Settings

Edited by: Jean Ehret, Erwin Mode

What is the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT)? What can be its beneficial impact on life in all its aspects, on education, and on research at the beginning of the 21st century? In this collection, contributions written by scholars from Asia, Europe, North America, and South America show that the CIT is by no means a traditionalist reaction to a secular globalized world. Addressing contemporary issues - economical, social, managerial, educational, religious, philosophical, and theological - at a local or global level, they also draw on the Judeo-Christian heritage as it has been and is still preserved, transmitted, and developed in the Catholic Church. They show that the CIT is a powerful creative imagination that is able to make a life-fostering difference in today's world. (Series: Glaube und Ethos - Vol. 10)
