Intellectual Tradition,直接能看黄的免费网址,,黄大片好看视频免费,日本猛片在线观看Intellectual life is central to the identity of a Catholic university.  A distinct feature of the Catholic intellectual tradition is the belief that knowledge achieved through reason, and knowledge attained by faith, are equally valid and compatible. From the earliest beginnings of the Catholic university learning drew not only from the Catholic tradition but also from other faith traditions.  The Catholic tradition has always been enriched by the contributions of other faiths as well as a broad range of philosophies and ways of living.

Some characteristics of a vibrant Catholic intellectual tradition are study of Scripture, particularly as it relates to contemporary life; spirituality as a genuine expression of faith; examination of philosophical ideas, both traditional and innovative; study of classic texts  in order to understand the past;  and exploration of ethical issues and behavior.

The University of San Diego sees itself as heir to this tradition.  Open to free inquiry and enriched by the contributions of many religions and schools of thought, as well as by the culture in which it exists, it welcomes scholars of different traditions. As a Catholic university it is committed to academic freedom in teaching, research and service, and regards this freedom as essential to teaching and to the pursuit of scholarly activities within the academic community.
