Primary Instructor:

This course treats religion philosophically. It examines, critically, the fundamental concepts and doctrines common to such monotheistic religions as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It will discuss non-monotheistic religions only in passing.

Among the questions it will consider are:

  • What do we mean when we affirm (or deny) the existence of God?
  • What good reasons are there to believe (or not believe) in God?
  • Is there a conflict between religion and science?
  • Does morality depend on religion?
  • Are there good reasons for us to be tolerant of those whose religious beliefs differ from ours?
