In this introductory philosophy of religion course, students will be introduced to various forms and justifications of Theism, Atheism and Agnosticism, as well as to various accounts of the nature and purpose of God. Additionally, relationships that may hold between religion and other intellectual disciplines, such as, for example, ethics, epistemology, science, and psychology, are explored. The primary purpose of the course involves the critical examination both of the theoretical-philosophical justifications for various religious claims and beliefs, and of the philosophical problems and answers that arise therefrom.
