Philosophy of Religion

Course Level-Format:  
Instructor: Casey Haskins
Institution: Purchase College

Course Term: Spring
Course Year: 2002


A 2002 course by Casey Haskins at Purchase College “introduces a few of the most important philosophical debates about religion from medieval times to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Among the main topics discussed will be: the problem of defining “religion” as a philosophical and a cultural phenomenon ; arguments for and against the existence of God; the problem of reconciling scientific and religious worldviews; the rationality of religious belief; and the question of what forms religion might, and should, and should not, take in our postmodern and global age.”
