2018 Exploring Philosophy of Religion
We will explore and discuss a number of problems and issues in the philosophy of religion. These include varying conceptions of the divine; proposed proofs and disproofs of God’s existence; the problem of evil; the question of miracles; and feminist critiques of mainstream theology. Also included will be issues of atheism and agnosticism; struggles over religiously motivated terrorism; and conceptions of soul and immortality. Our discussions will be of interest to religious believers and non-believers alike. As a basis for our explorations of these themes, Internet sources will be recommended. Readings are many and diverse – but short. Past participants have appreciated the calm and respectful atmosphere in which various beliefs and commitments have been discussed.
