Towards a Contemporary Philosophy of Catholic Education: Moving the Debate Forward
Whittle, Sean
International Studies in Catholic Education, v6 n1 p46-59 2014
This article returns to the debate that Carmody initiated in this journal in 2011 when he proposed that Bernard Lonergan's account of self-transcendence could provide the framework for a contemporary philosophy of Catholic education. Here the advantages and disadvantages of this proposal are scrutinised. Carmody's treatment brings into focus the need to clarify the relationship between theology and education. A taxonomy of this relationship is presented before moving onto consider the ways in which another leading Jesuit, Karl Rahner, is better able to frame and inspire a robust theory or philosophy of Catholic education.
