    Why Theology Can and Should Be Taught at Secular Universities: Lonergan on Intellectual Conversion.Patrick Giddy - 2011 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 45 (3):527-543.
    Drawing on Bernard Lonergan's Method in Theology (1972) I argue that theology can be taught because personal knowledge, of which it is an instance, is at the heart of academic inquiry; and it should be taught because critical engagement with basic ways of taking one's life as a whole (religion in a broad sense) furnishes a critique of the typical oversights of contemporary culture. The appropriation of one's subjectivity entails an awareness of an existential dialectic that pushes towards a decisive (...)

    Objectivity and Subjectivity: An Argument for Rethinking the Philosophy Syllabus.Patrick Giddy - 2009 - South African Journal of Philosophy 28 (4):359-376.
    An analysis of the concepts of subjectivity and objectivity at work in standard introductions to philosophy reveals an oversight of self-knowledge and tracing the move from a common-sense culture to a scientific one throws up the idea of self-appropriation as the hidden heart of modern thought. The aftermath of the rise of modern physics has been a picture of reality as alienated from our commonly experienced sense of purposes, aims, and intentions as defining our everyday lives, what we may call (...)

    Special Divine Action and How to Do Philosophy of Religion.Patrick Giddy - 2011 - South African Journal of Philosophy 30 (2):143-154.
    Any notion of a god that is of relevance to us must show how it makes a difference in the world. But this idea of an interventionist god doesn’t make sense for a secular and scientific mentality such as ours. I take Brenda de Wet’s five sticking points for any religious believer that seem to fail to make the grade of intellectual integrity (2008), and argue that starting from creedal and popular formulations of the notion of a god, as she (...)

    Attention, People of Earth! Aristotelian Ethics and the Problem of Exclusion.Patrick Giddy - 2010 - South African Journal of Philosophy 29 (4):357-372.
    Growth in human happiness seems to do in part with insights gained through attentive emotional engagement with fictional characters and their identities. For this reason it is important to pay attention to the critique that founding ethics on what we cannot but affirm of ourselves, our identity (rationality and sociability, in Nussbaum’s reading of Aristotle), amounts to a moral elitism, excluding those who fail to meet these marks of human identity. This objection throws light on the importance of the shift (...)

    African Traditional Thought and Growth in Personal Unity.Patrick Giddy - 2002 - International Philosophical Quarterly 42 (3):315-327.
    In traditional African ethics the emphasis is on respect and hierarchy. This is underpinned by a conception of the person as normative, developmental, and communitarian. But in this conception the person is only problematically unified. Further elaboration is needed on how one’s motivational structure is critically integrated if the tradition is to be reformulated so as to meet the challenges of a liberal, and often relativist, global culture. The psychological and intersubjective conditions for such personal growth need to be spelled (...)

    Does Character Matter? Guardian Values in an Age of Commerce.Patrick Giddy - 2007 - Theoria 54 (113):53-75.
    Standards of excellence in the sphere of work are often taken to be at odds with our ethical obligations in general. In an age of commerce little attention is paid to how the manner in which things are done impacts on the agent's character. Jane Jacobs' phenomenology of our moral intuitions about the public world of work reveal two frameworks, the 'commercial moral syndrome' stressing fairness, and the 'guardian moral syndrome' emphasizing loyalty. In the latter set of values we have (...)

    The Ideal of African Scholarship and its Implications for Introductory Philosophy: The Example of Placide Tempels.Patrick Giddy - 2012 - South African Journal of Philosophy 31 (3):504-516.
    Thinking of an academic discipline in terms of a ‘social practice’ (MacIntyre) helps in formulating what the ideal captured in the slogan ‘African scholarship’ can contribute to the discipline. For every practice is threatened by the attractiveness of goods external to the practice – in particular, competitiveness for its own sake – and to counter this virtues of character are needed. African traditional culture prioritizes a normative picture of the human person which could very well contribute here to upholding the (...)
