Last year at the MTS program, we studied philosophy under Fr. Brian Chrzastek, O.P. At the end of the class, each student chose a philosophical topic or a particular philosopher to study during the year and present this summer. Now the time for sharing the fruits of our studies has come!
Sr. Mary of the Savior, O.P., from the Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament in Farmington Hills, MI is leading our seminar. This is a historic moment as it is the first time a Dominican nun has led a seminar for Dominican nuns at a study program in the United States!
Sr. Mary Dominic (Lufkin, TX) gave a fascinating Power Point presentation on the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre.
Sr. Mary Thomas (Lufkin, TX) gestured emphatically while discussing the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. Sr. Mary Frances (Farmington Hills, MI) and Sr. Mary Gabriel (Lufkin, TX) are listening!
Sr. Maria Teresa (Summit, NJ) explains to the seminar about the \”Materialists, the Idealists, and the Reconciled\” while Sr. Joseph Maria (Summit) and Sr. Mary John look on.
Sr. Mary Rose (Lufkin, TX) explains some of the philosophy of Wittgenstein using monastic examples.
Sr. Mary of the Savior seems pleased with our year of work!
