PHL 332 - Religion and Its Critics: Studies in Philosophy of Religion

How intelligent is “intelligent design”? Is belief in God rational? Is it moral? Or, is religion a way of life that creates hostility and destroys our ability to be human? How can religion address the problems of evil and innocent suffering? This discussion-intensive course explores several of the most influential philosophical criticisms of religion, along with a range of defenses of religious belief and practice, through philosophical and literary texts. The course surveys premodern, modern, and postmodern texts from the Jewish, Christian, and philosophical traditions. Satisfies the Arts and Humanities core requirement.
