PHIL/RELI 134/126.001 – Reason, Faith, and God: Philosophy of Western Religion
Instructor Aaron Thieme. This course meets TR 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. in CW 105.
In this course we will survey philosophical arguments for and against the existence of an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent God. Some of the arguments that we will consider for the existence of God may include cosmological arguments, moral arguments, and ontological arguments; the primary argument that we will consider against the existence of God is the argument from evil. Our readings will mostly be from recent philosophers working on these issues. Our goal in this survey will be to develop a philosophically informed view of whether God exists.
