Abstract

Dr. Paul Gyllenhammer describes his efforts to assist students who have had little exposure to philosophy, grow in knowledge of outstanding philosophers but also to find place in their own lives for “reflection time to judge and to govern our-selves responsibly” and “to live honestly.” His approach facilitates the Mission statement concept: “analyze and articulate clearly what is, but also develop the ethical and aesthetic values to imagine and help realize what might be.”

Catholic universities will be particularly attentive to the poorest and to those who suffer economic, social, cultural or religious injustice. This responsibility begins within the academic community but it also finds application beyond it.
