This is an advanced course on philosophical issues related to (primarily monotheistic) religious belief and practice. We will make use of the tools of analytic philosophy, and there will be a special emphasis on rigorous argumentation. We will read high-level contemporary philosophical work about religious epistemology, arguments for and against the existence of God, religion and meta-ethics, and also metaphysical issues about freedom, souls, and the afterlife. Significant background in philosophy is strongly advised.
