Book Review: Daniel Sulmasy, A Balm For Gilead: Spirituality And The Healing Arts, Washington, D.C., Georgetown University Press, 2006, Glenn J. Morrison 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Book Review: Daniel Sulmasy, A Balm For Gilead: Spirituality And The Healing Arts, Washington, D.C., Georgetown University Press, 2006, Glenn J. Morrison

Theology Papers and Journal Articles

In the tradition of Christian Spirituality, Daniel Sulmasy’s A Balm for Gilead: Spirituality and the Healing Arts reads as a personal witness and exploration of Christian faith. Forwarding biblical, moral, spiritual, pastoral, theological, philosophical and Franciscan perspectives, we discover a quest to journey into the heart of health care professionals to awaken a sense of spirituality and transcendence. Given the empirical, scientific approach of the medical professional, this is not an easy task. None the less, Sulmasy, through a series of meditative chapters, sets out to develop a rational and inspirational way to speak about God, prayer and the ...


The Season Of Advent: A Timeline Of Its Historical Development, Russell Hardiman 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Season Of Advent: A Timeline Of Its Historical Development, Russell Hardiman

Theology Papers and Journal Articles

Beyond the pragmatic benefit of background briefing about the origins and development of the season of Advent, this Timeline is meant to be a pastoral tool to help focus on the deepest meaning of Advent being a unique time for reflection on the many 'comings' of Christ in the past, in the present and in the future.


The Emergence Of The Cult Of Saints, Russell Hardiman 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Emergence Of The Cult Of Saints, Russell Hardiman

Theology Papers and Journal Articles

The continuity of the veneration of saints was shaped by the events of the secular world and the emergence of new peoples invading Europe from Asia and providing a challenge to monks especially with a missionary zeal to bring the new emerging nations into the Christian world of Europe and the Eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea.

‘Remember The Peasantry’: A Study Of Genocide, Famine, And The Stalinist Holodomor In Soviet Ukraine, 1932-33, As It Was Remembered By Post-War Immigrants In Western Australia Who Experienced It, Lesa Melnyczuk Morgan 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

‘Remember The Peasantry’: A Study Of Genocide, Famine, And The Stalinist Holodomor In Soviet Ukraine, 1932-33, As It Was Remembered By Post-War Immigrants In Western Australia Who Experienced It, Lesa Melnyczuk Morgan

Theses

In 1936 Joseph Stalin offered what he called ‘friendly advice’ to his Communist allies in war-torn Spain: ‘One should pay attention to the peasantry, which...is of great importance.’1 So important, indeed, was the peasantry to the security of the Communist state that Stalin had adopted ruthless, widespread policies in the Soviet Union to ensure their compliance with the centralised regime in Moscow.

The devastating famine experienced in Soviet Ukraine from 1932 to 1933 was an example of such ruthless policies of Stalin’s government. Some scholars argue that in the space of a year up to ten million ...


The Role Of The Imagination In The Religious Conversion Of Adolescents Attending Catholic Secondary Schools, Richard Patrick Branson 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Role Of The Imagination In The Religious Conversion Of Adolescents Attending Catholic Secondary Schools, Richard Patrick Branson

Theses

The mission of the Catholic Church is evangelisation, the purpose of which is conversion. At a diocesan level, the mission is carried out through the agencies of family, parish and school. Every Catholic school is mandated to carry out its part in the Church’s mission through its curriculum that incorporates both Religious Education and planned catechetical experiences. This study was devised to find out some students’ perceptions of their faith, the influences that they perceive on changes to their faith, and to describe how the imagination assisted their faith development and religious conversion. Fifteen Catholic secondary school students from ...


Models Of Faith And Reason, Peter Holmes 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Models Of Faith And Reason, Peter Holmes

Theses

In his excellent work The Assurance of things Hoped For 1 surveying the development of the understanding of “faith” in the context of the Christian religion, Avery Dulles provides a concise sketch of the historical development and current manifestation of seven 'models' of faith which still have some contemporary influence. This thesis takes each of the models of faith Dulles presents and gives a brief description of the model; offers some preliminary observations about the relationship between faith and reason in the respective models; and, by examining the Church's teaching on faith and reason in Fides et Ratio, discusses ...


An Exploration Of The Study Abroad Experiences Of United States Students In Three Halls Of Residence At A Catholic University In Western Australia, Nicole Schiffer 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

An Exploration Of The Study Abroad Experiences Of United States Students In Three Halls Of Residence At A Catholic University In Western Australia, Nicole Schiffer

Theses

The purpose of this research was to explore the ways United States students develop through studying abroad at a Catholic university in Western Australia. The significance of the research lies in the belief that host and home universities should be aware of the needs of these study abroad students. The needs of these students were understood through an exploration of the challenges faced, the support received, and the personal and professional development attained.

Four dimensions of the context contributed to an understanding of this study. These four dimensions were the University of Notre Dame Australia Fremantle, the UNDA three halls ...


The Book Of Job: Navigating Between The Two Jobs From The Perspective Of Ritual, Lawrence Pang 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Book Of Job: Navigating Between The Two Jobs From The Perspective Of Ritual, Lawrence Pang

Theses

The overarching problem concerning the unity of the book of Job is its conflicting juxtaposition of Job’s character. In the prose frame, Job does not charge God with any wrongdoing despite the afflictions against him and is acknowledged by God for his piety whereas in the dialogue, Job responses with words of accusation against God for his trouble and for mismanaging the affairs of the world according to the orthodoxy of reward and punishment. Various methodological approaches, ranging from the synchronic to the diachronic, have been advanced to account for the dissonance, however, to date, no attempt has been ...


An American Abroad: The Life And Career Of Robert Owens, Jamie M. Reimer 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

An American Abroad: The Life And Career Of Robert Owens, Jamie M. Reimer

Faculty Publications: School of Music

The life and career of African-American composer Robert Owens are a result of perseverance, creativity, and accidental opportunity. From his roots in Texas to his travels in France and his eventual settlement in Germany, Owens proves that if one believes in himself and his abilities, nearly any obstacle can be overcome. ... Owens' accomplishments as a composer have gained considerable recognition in the last five years, including the "Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, Rosa Parks Visiting Professorship" at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2004) and The International Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Negro Musicians (2008). Owens ...


Shame And Philosophy, Richard P. Hamilton 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Shame And Philosophy, Richard P. Hamilton

Philosophy Papers and Journal Articles

Shame is a ubiquitous and highly intriguing feature of human experience. It can motivate but it can also paralyse. It is something which one can legitimately demand of another, but is not usually experienced as a choice. Perpetrators of atrocities can remain defiantly immune to shame while their victims are racked by it. It would be hard to understand any society or culture without understanding the characteristic occasions upon which shame is expected and where it is mitigated. Yet, one can survey much of the literature in social and political theory over the last century and find barely a footnote ...


Τρυφη And Υβρισ In The Περι Βιων Of Clearchus, Vanessa B. Gorman, Robert J. Gorman 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Τρυφη And Υβρισ In The Περι Βιων Of Clearchus, Vanessa B. Gorman, Robert J. Gorman

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Recent discussions of the fragments of the Περι Βίων have seen the concept of pernicious luxury as a key to understanding aspects of this work of Clearchus. In particular, it is thought that Clearchus reflects a moralizing historiographical schema according to which wealth leads to an effeminate luxury (τρυφή), eventually producing satiety (κόρος), which in turn provokes the afflicted to violence (υβρις), ultimately bringing the subject’s destruction. We maintain, in contrast, that it is anachronistic to attribute this pattern of thought to Clearchus, and further, that the state of the evidence does not permit us to establish that the ...


Is Justification Knowledge?, Brent J C Madison 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Is Justification Knowledge?, Brent J C Madison

Philosophy Papers and Journal Articles

Analytic epistemologists agree that, whatever else is true of epistemic justification, it is distinct from knowledge. However, if recent work by Jonathan Sutton is correct, this view is deeply mistaken, for according to Sutton justification is knowledge. That is, a subject is justified in believing that ρ iff he knows that ρ. Sutton further claims that there is no concept of epistemic justification distinct from knowledge. Since knowledge is factive, a consequence of Sutton’s view is that there are no false justified beliefs.

Following Sutton, I will begin by outlining kinds of beliefs that do not constitute knowledge but ...


Heidegger’S Notion Of Religion: The Limits Of Being-Understanding, Angus Brook 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Heidegger’S Notion Of Religion: The Limits Of Being-Understanding, Angus Brook

Philosophy Papers and Journal Articles

In the last two decades, the question of religion has become a central concern of many philosophers belonging to the Continental philosophical tradition. As the interest in religion has grown within Continental philosophy, so also has the question of Martin Heidegger’s relationship with religion. This paper poses the question of what religion meant to Martin Heidegger in the development of phenomenology as ontology; how he preconceived the notion of religion and why he eventually denied any authenticity to religion. In engaging with this question, the paper will also attempt to disclose some delimitations of Heidegger’s approach to religion.


Epistemic Internalism, Brent J C Madison 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Epistemic Internalism, Brent J C Madison

Philosophy Papers and Journal Articles

The internalism/externalism debate is of interest in epistemology since it addresses one of the most fundamental questions in the discipline: what is the basic nature of knowledge and epistemic justification? It is generally held that if a positive epistemic status obtains, this is not a brute fact. Rather if a belief is, for example, justified, it is justified in virtue of some further condition(s) obtaining. What has been called epistemic internalism holds, as the label suggests, is that all the relevant factors that determine justification must be “internal” (in a sense that needs to be specified). Epistemic externalism ...


The Concept Of Health: Beyond Normativism And Naturalism, Richard Hamilton 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Concept Of Health: Beyond Normativism And Naturalism, Richard Hamilton

Philosophy Papers and Journal Articles

Philosophical discussions of health and disease have traditionally been dominated by a debate between normativists, who hold that health is an inescapably value-laded concept and naturalists, such as Christopher Boorse, who believe that it is possible to derive a purely descriptive or theoretical definition of health based upon biological function. In this paper I defend a distinctive view which traces its origins in Aristotle's naturalistic ethics. An Arisotelian would agree with Boorse that health and disease are ubiquitous features of the natural world and thus not mere projections of human interests and values. She would differ from him in ...

Getting Out Of A Rut: Decolonizing Western Women’S History, Margaret D. Jacobs 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Getting Out Of A Rut: Decolonizing Western Women’S History, Margaret D. Jacobs

Faculty Publications, Department of History

For over three decades, western women’s historians have been working not just to challenge male biases within western history scholarship but also to create a more multicultural inclusive narrative. Paradoxically, however, the overarching narrative of western women’s history continues to sideline women of color and to advance a triumphalist interpretation of white women in the West. This essay argues that a multicultural approach has not provided an adequate framework for understanding women and gender in the American West. Instead, western women historians must “decolonize” our narrative and our field through seriously considering the West as a colonial site ...


In Trace Of Tr: A Montana Hunter's Journey, Dan Aadland 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

In Trace Of Tr: A Montana Hunter's Journey, Dan Aadland

University of Nebraska Press -- Sample Books and Chapters

As a student of American history, as a hunter, horseman, and former Marine, and as someone passionate about the West, Dan Aadland had long felt a kinship with Theodore Roosevelt. One day, on a single-footing horse, lever-action rifle under his knee, Aadland set out to become acquainted with TR as only those who shared his experiences could. In Trace of TR documents that quest, inviting readers to ride along and get to know Theodore Roosevelt through the western environment that so profoundly influenced him. Accompany Aadland as he rides the broad prairies in search of TR’s “prongbuck,” tracks elk ...
