In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus summarizes the core message of His teaching: “In everything do to others as you would have them do to you.” Confucius said, “What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others.” These are just a few iterations of the Golden Rule. Indeed, nearly every religion—including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism—embraces the Golden Rule.

Sometimes written as “treat others as you want to be treated,” the Golden Rule is the basis for a powerful ethical system. Under the guidance

Fr. Harry J. Gensler, S.J., Ph.D., is a leading authority on Catholic philosophy, a Jesuit priest, and a Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago. He has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan (1977), a Master of Divinity from Loyola University Chicago, and an M.A. in Philosophy from Wayne State University. He co-edited the first and only general Anthology of Catholic Philosophy, and his corresponding historical Christian Thinkers course is especially popular among Jesuit graduate students. He has published fourteen books, including Ethics: A Contemporary Introduction, Introduction to Logic, and Ethics and the Golden Rule, all with Routledge Press. His newest book is Ethics and Religion (Cambridge University Press, 2016). Praise for Harry Gensler “Gensler is the world’s most logical, clear, and good-humored teacher of the golden rule. Gensler’s super-clear and sometimes funny visual aids keep you laughing and learning. He clarifies misunderstandings and refutes cheap attacks on the rule; and he brings in practical wisdom, historical information, and diverse religious perspectives. This lecture series is not to be missed.” – Jeffrey Wattles, Kent State University “Professor Harry Gensler’s life-long fascination with the Golden Rule brings us works that meet the most rigorous scrutiny of philosophers and provide a simple and powerful moral tool any person can apply every day.” – Leland R. Beaumont “Harry Gensler has done outstanding and extremely important work on the Golden-Rule… His work is very clear, very strongly argued, and highly original. This work is an outstanding contribution to ethical theory and has many important applications in applied/practical ethics.” – Thomas Carson, Loyola University Chicago “Father Gensler is one of those rare professors and scholars who combines careful study of philosophical writing and argumentation with an astonishing capacity to communicate the results of that study to a wide and varied audience. He has studied Catholic Philosophy, through its long history, in broad detail.” – Dr. James Swindal, Dean of McAnulty College, Duquesne University “Harry Gensler, S.J., is a first-rate ethicist, logician, and Catholic philosopher. His writings sparkle with clarity and conciseness in facing some of the most difficult problems of ethics, logic, and philosophy in general. They illuminate foundational issues in ways that benefit teachers, researchers, and students alike.” – Paul K. Moser, Professor of Philosophy, Loyola University Chicago

    “Treat Others Only as You Consent to being Treated in the Same Situation” (Gensler 2013: 19).

    This insight will condense my thoughts about Professor Gensler Golden Rule life’s work.

    “Every person who is in training for wisdom, leading a blameless, irreproachable life, chooses to neither commit injustice nor return in to others.”
    Philo of Alexandria – Special Laws

    Thank you for a fine a clear insights.
