Featured unit in Semester 1, 2021
One of the key categories in contemporary theological ethics and political theology is that of the neighbour. Neighbours have figured in modernity as anything from monstrous figures of alienation, to totally other, yet intimate, figures of difference. What we will begin to see through this unit, however, is how the neighbour becomes a window into the self. Often the trouble with neighbours is really a trouble with the self into which the neighbour is incorporated.
This unit will introduce students to some of the ways theological concepts of neighbourliness have been entangled in key political and ethical struggles of the 20th and 21st century, and will go on to develop a theological ethics/politics of neighbour love.
