John Haughey, S.J.
Fr. Haughey currently coordinates Woodstock’s Catholic Higher Education Project and is involved with the Arrupe Program in Social Ethics for Business. As part of his work for the Catholic Higher Education Project, he recently wrote Where’s Knowing Going: Horizons of the Knowing Subject (Georgetown Press, 2009) and edited In Search of the Whole: 12 Essays on Faith and Academic Life (Georgetown Press, 2011).
Fr. Haughey is also directing an ongoing colloquium on transhumanism with Sr. Ilia Delio. This colloquium is a group of 7 scholars who have been meeting since 2009 to discuss the response of the Catholic intellectual tradition to the World Transhumanism Association’s tenets, namely, that it is only a matter of time before science and technology will deliver the goods that the religions promised.
Another area of theological interest for Fr. Haughey is the role of charism in the church and world: how does the Holy Spirit move each individual person to his or her individual call to work for the common good? Fr. Haughey received his Doctorate in Sacred Theology from Catholic University. He was appointed by Vatican's Council on Christian Unity to serve as member of its international dialogues with Pentecostalism and World Evangelical Alliance.
Fr. Haughey also served as Associate and Corresponding Editor for America magazine. He has taught theology and religion at Georgetown University, Fordham University, Seton Hall University, Weston School of Theology, John Carroll University, and Marquette University, and was a professor of religious ethics at Loyola University Chicago.
His other books include Revisiting the Idea of Vocation (Editor, Catholic University Press, 2004), Housing Heaven's Fire (Loyola Press, 2002), Virtue and Affluence (Sheed and Ward, 1997), Converting Nine to Five: A Spirituality of Daily Work (Crossroad/Continuum, 1989), and The Holy Use of Money: Personal Finances in Light of Christian Faith (Doubleday, 1986).
