PHIL 2830 - Introduction to Philosophy of Religion


Central to philosophy is a careful examination of human reasons for holding their beliefs. Given the complexity/ineffability of religious experience, philosophy of religion’s examination of reasons is especially difficult. This course will analyze and evaluate Western monotheism both generally and as it relates to the traditional questions of faith and reason, the problem of evil, fate, and free will and the existence of miracles. Time permitting, non-Western as well as Western religions will be considered.

When Offered: Upon availability of instructor.



Credit Hours: 4
