Origin, Development and Purpose
The School of Ecclesiastical Philosophy at the University of Navarra was established by the Holy See in 1988, in accordance with the norms of the Apostolic Constitution Sapientia Christiana.
Its purpose is to research philosophical problems and fundamental questions in the light of other sciences and cultures, with an open attitude toward divine revelation, which will contribute to highlighting the coherence that exists between proper human knowledge and the Christian vision of the world, mankind and God.
The School endeavors to provide its students with a well-rounded education in Philosophy and prepare them to be teachers and scholars with a thorough knowledge of classical and modern thought so they can carry out their work in dialogue with a range of different cultural environments, in a spirit of partnership between philosophers and theologians.
The close contact between the School of Ecclesiastical Philosophy and the Department of Philosophy at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences – which has nearly 50 years of experience – ensures the quality of the study programs.
