An Introduction to Philosophy and Theology within Catholic Liberal Education(2014)
Readers of this volume, but very particularly, our students, are invited to engage with some of the
pivotal ideas we work with in our Logos programme, the core curriculum of the Sydney campus of the
University of Notre Dame Australia, in which students and teachers converse about some of the most
fundamental ideas taken from the Western tradition of thought within philosophy and theology. In the
Logos classroom, students from every discipline within the university participate in lively discussions that
contribute to what we understand to be the mission of Notre Dame Australia as a Catholic university.
Namely, we educate out of a desire for the happiness of those we are privileged to teach, and with the
intent to give them the opportunity to live fully flourishing lives as citizens of a political society and
productive workers and professionals. Above all, we hope that they may flourish as persons in community.
The Logos programme is intended to give them a taste of how that communal flourishing might happen.
