Shadow Sophia

The Evolution of Wisdom, Volume II

Celia E. Deane-Drummond

  • Engages with evolutionary and psychological theories in mapping the origin of tendencies to act in ways that correspond to traditional theological teaching on vice, especially the seven deadly sins
  • Provides a constructive approach to biosocial moral evolution through engagement with the philosophy of Paul Ricoeur
  • Develops a theology of wisdom (shadow sophia) that explores the origin of sin and a deeper understanding of the virtues in the light of a Thomistic understanding of moral agency
