Debates over moral and ethical issues have become increasingly complex with the rise of modern science, the gradual secularization and diversification of Western culture, and the “turn to the subject” in modern thought. Christian ethicists have had to develop new ways of thinking about moral issues and moral agency in light of these challenges. This course looks at some of the conceptual problems associated with the practice of moral theology in the contemporary world and investigates some of the ways in which Christian moral theologians have sought to address these challenges.
