"to transmit Catholic intellectual tradition while conversing charitably with all viewpoints"

Why Avery Dulles Matters


Fr. Guarino's research focuses on the area at the borderline of philosophy and theology, asking questions such as: What is the proper role of philosophical thinking in theology?; What is the nature of interpretation?; How is truth to be understood?; How can human language be applied to God?; May we speak of a perduring identity throughout history and temporality? My teaching seeks to communicate to students the richness of the Catholic intellectual tradition while highlighting the intense commitment of Catholicism to ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, and, indeed, to fruitful and charitable exchanges with all men and women, regardless of belief.
