PHIL 345 - Philosophy of Religion


This course is designed (a) to introduce the student to some of the central philosophical questions that have been raised by philosophers thinking about religion, especially in the West, and (b) to examine some of the key answers that have been given to those questions. We will examine the basis and justification of a variety of common religious claims and cover such issues as the attempt to prove God’s existence, the nature and attributes of God, the problem of evil, the status and interpretation of religious language, the nature of religious experience, the relation of faith to reason, religious ethics, miracles, the fate of the soul and the meaning of death, and religious pluralism.
