Order Description

According to Meghan Clark (The Vision of Catholic Social Thought: The Virtue of Solidarity and the Praxis of Human Rights. Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 2014, 8), “The radical claim of Catholic social thought is not that you and I have equal humanity or human dignity. The radical claim of Catholic social thought is that my humanity is bound up in yours. We are one, such that when your human rights are violated, my dignity is violated as well.” Drawing on relevant principles in Christian anthropology, moral theology and Catholic social teaching, discuss how Clark’s view on solidarity can contribute towards building a community of people living more fully human lives in the world.
