Summary

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus summarizes the core message of his teaching: "In everything do to others as you would have them do to you" (Mt 7:12). This idea, called the Golden Rule, is foundational to the Christian life. Now you can to join one of the world's leading authorities on the Golden Rule in applying these words to your daily life.

Sometimes written as "treat others as you want to be treated", the Golden Rule is the basis for a powerful ethical system. Under the guidance of Fr. Harry Gensler, SJ, you will explore its applications in Scripture, philosophy, and modern life.

The Golden Rule can help you better reflect on your daily duties and promote human rights. This 12-lecture course will provide you with firm guidance in applying the Golden Rule wisely and readily in your life.

Nearly every religion - including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism - embraces the Golden Rule. It thus provides a common ethical standard with which to engage in interreligious dialogue in our increasingly diverse world.

You will explore four essential areas of the Golden Rule: its basic applications, how it relates to religion, practicing the Golden Rule, and its history. This course is perfect for Christians looking to expand their knowledge of philosophy while engaging more deeply in the world. Come to appreciate the clarity and power of Earth's most important moral ideal: the Golden Rule.
