Abstract

M ich ael J. Naugh ton A Tale of Two Adams Insights for the Integrity of a Catholic University The Second Vatican Council describes the divided life as “the split between the faith which many profess and their daily lives.” This split creates a false opposition between public and private spheres, faith and reason, professional and religious life. The Council explains that this split and divide “deserves to be counted among the more serious errors of our age.” Alasdair MacIntyre calls this split “compartmen- talization,” which he argues is an increasing problem in modern life. In this article, I will examine the deep religious roots of this di- vided life, taking a cue from the book The Lonely Man of Faith by the Orthodox Jewish rabbi, Joseph Soloveitchik. The book originated, in part, in a talk to Catholic seminarians. Soloveitchik draws upon the two creation stories in the Book of Genesis that ground his insights in a theology of creation that is deeply if not entirely congruent with Catholic theology. I will then offer a critique of our contemporary attempts to solve the divided life syndrome by striving for “balance,” rather than by insisting on a deeper integration of
