This course examines religion from a philosophical perspective. What is the nature of the "divine"? Can we give a rational account of religious experience? Can we prove the existence of God? Can the idea of God be reconciled with the presence of evil in the world? Is atheism a viable alternative to faith? These are just some of the questions this course explores. We will consider both western and eastern religions. PHL 110 is not available for credit to students who choose PHL 610.
This course will require you to be online for live lectures at the scheduled time. There will also be some pre-recorded lectures. Class recordings will be available until the exam period. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
