Meet Robert Bourgeois, Ph.D.
In his courses, Robert Bourgeois brings to bear the universe story, history, and culture as forces which shape behavior and perception. A principal aim is the application of logical criteria to the evaluation of multiple cultural narratives, those of our Western inheritance and those of others.
"When I first came on the Albertus campus, I was immediately aware of a culture of courtesy"
One premise of his courses is that a citizen of the United States is also a citizen
of the planet. Another premise is the urgency of resisting materialist narratives
of existence which would extinguish the spiritual dimension of the human being. A
Dominican approach entails contemplation of the underlying webs of interconnected-ness
between humanity and nature and among all cultures.
