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.
