Dennis Kamalick is drawn to the efforts of Immanuel Kant to return the rigor of scientific method to the study of philosophy. Kant, once awakened from his “dogmatic slumber,” realized that philosophy was teetering on the brink of drowning in a self-annihilating skepticism. He provided the history of philosophy with the incentive to re-examine the roots of philosophical inquiry, which once had been aligned with those of science, and to transcend the unexamined dogmatism that had overshadowed philosophical inquiry, placing it in an adversarial position against science and relegating it to the role of “handmaid to theology."

Here at CTU Dennis seeks to understand and explain philosophical disciplines as they apply to the concrete, real-life ministerial aspirations of our students.
