Primary Instructor:

This is an advanced course on philosophical issues that arise in connection with religious belief and practice, especially those associated with monotheism. These issues include: the existence of God, the problem of evil, the rationality of religious belief, the compatibility of human freedom with divine foreknowledge, the possibility of bodily resurrection, and the Euthyphro problem. We will make use of the tools of analytic philosophy, and not take for granted the authority of any religious text or tradition. There will be a special emphasis on rigorous argumentation; significant background in philosophy is strongly advised.

Hi all! I have indicated the 2nd edition of this text because there are very cheap copies available online (e.g. one cent plus shipping). If you can get a later edition for a price you're comfortable with, that's great too. In addition to the readings here, I will be using pdf documents made available through CTools. Also don't stress about having the text for the first week of class.
