In this course we are going to critically examine modern transgender theory and see why it is false.

 

We live in a culture where the majority of people do not accept the teachings of the Bible or the Church as authoritative. Therefore, here we use reason. We want to philosophically critique the underlying assumptions of modern transgender theory from the perspective of scholastic philosophy.

 

Scholastic philosophy is the philosophy as it was practiced in the medieval “schools” of the middle ages. And although it was heavily influenced by Christian theology, their belief is that philosophical arguments can and should stand on their own grounds. Hence, we should accept the conclusion of philosophy based on the merits of the reasoning that supports it, not merely on the basis of faith.

 

For this reason, we will be using philosophical arguments to critique modern transgender theories.
