- Critical Reflections on the Theory of Knowledge in Philosophy and Theology, takes the motto of Servite High School: "I believe in order to understand" as the necessary background for examining critical thinking habits which inform faith. The course introduces the student to epistemology, the theory of knowledge, and the way truth claims are made. Sociopolitical & moral philosophy theories are studied to examine the implications of morality for social living. Students are invited to critically examine these theories in light of the Gospel.
