SCW course syllabus / YU only
Traditionally, the philosophy of religion critically examines (1) the central concepts of religion, particularly monotheistic religions and (2) arguments for and against religious belief and practice. In the past few decades, philosophers have questioned important assumptions, advanced new arguments, taken new positions, and introduced new topics. The intellectual and social climate and political realities have fostered specific perceptions of religion and generated “new-old’ debates. This course will explore philosophical issues about religion as they were discussed in the past and as they are discussed today in both Anglo-American and Continental philosophy. By considering these issues we will see how religions both exhibit continuity across time yet engage new intellectual and social developments.¶ Course objectives: It is anticipated that you will • Familiarize yourself with the various sides of each topic below and the arguments for and against each position. • Familiarize yourself with important thinkers who have addressed the topics. • Enhance your ability to construct arguments of your own, both critical and constructive. • Enhance your ability to communicate clearly, systematically, and critically. • Analyze and assess current debates about religion.
