PHL* K151 - World Religions °


3 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisite: ENG* K101  or ENG* K101S  placement∞ or completion of ENG* K096  with a “C#” grade or better.
This course will begin by providing students with a philosophical framework that will be used to understand the world’s major religious traditions. What is religion? How do each of the traditions considered illustrate the workings of myth, practice, experience, and community and how do all of these elements come together in the construction of a worldview particular to each? We will focus on Indigenous religious traditions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucian­ism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We may also examine other religious expressions including emerging visions. Many topics will be interwoven into our studies including theistic, non-theistic, mystical, and devotional approaches, theological problems such as theodicy, as well as many social and ethical issues of current concern, particularly the role of women in traditional and emerging expressions. Course fulfills International/Intercultural Requirement.
