PART A. ESSAY: In a well-organized essay, provide a critical response to ONLY ONE of the following statements (Submit your response on Blackboard, Assignments Tab; PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LABEL CLEARLY WHICH STATEMENT YOU ARE RESPONDING TO):
EACH STATEMENT EXRESSES a position from the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. Informed by the texts you have encountered in this class and your understanding of the dialogue between Christianity and Culture, SELECT ONE TO WHICH YOU WILL REPOND. YOU MAY AGREE, DISAGREE, OR OFFER A POSITION SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN THE STATEMENT AND WHAT MIGHT BE CONSIDERED a contrary view.
I am choosing this statement and agreeing with it.
Statement III. It does not matter whether you are poor or wealthy; we all have equal dignity. As the Bible teaches, “The rich and the poor have this in common: the LORD is the maker of them all.” Accordingly, unjust possession of the goods of creation is to be rejected. All persons have an equal right to education, property, health insurance, credit, the markets, and all other means necessary for human flourishing.
1. Develop your response to one of the above statements using the insights of at least four sources or readings from the list of readings covered in your specific section of Christianity and Culture in Dialogue.
3. You do not need to know where the statement comes from in the course readings. All you need to do is to provide your critical response to the selected passage by discussing at least four course readings.
• In crafting your critical response, please make sure to state clearly your overall argument or thesis in your introduction. In your concluding paragraph(s), please make sure to summarize your argument, identify any possible objections, and provide your response to those objections.
• To assist you in organizing and developing your essay, below are a couple of ways you can begin to craft a response to the passages above:
o For example, for the second statement, one can begin with:
“I agree that human persons are intrinsically valuable because God created us with spiritual souls. But I disagree that only philosophical and religious reflection can reveal this truth. I will explain my thesis by turning to the works of…”
“While I agree that all persons possess equal worth, I do not think that it is unjust for some persons to possess more wealth than others because… I will defend this thesis through a critical assessment of…”
• Whatever your response, your task is to persuade your reader of the validity of your position, recognizing that some readers will disagree with you. Support your position by discussing at least four readings you have covered in your particular CORE 2101 section.
The readings covered are The First Letter of John, Plato`s Crito, Letters of Pliny and Trajan, The Passion of Perpetua and Felicity, Tertullian Athens vs. Jerusalem, Justin Martyr “First Apology”, Saint Augustine “The City of God”, Julian of Norwich, Genesis 1-3 , Genesis 4-11, John Paul II “Truth Cannot Contradict Truth”, John Locke Second Treatise, Pope Francis’ Laudato Si, Pope Francis Evangelii Gaudium, Gaudiem et spes, Karl Marx Communist Manifesto, C.S. Lewis Mere Christianity, “An Unbelieving Age’ by Terry Eagleton
Please choose from these 4 as the sources.
