PHL* K225 - Science, Religion, and the Human Experience °


3 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisites: Completion of ENG* K101  or ENG* K101S  with “C” or better; any 100-level humanities or social science course.
Historically, the cultural forces of scientific inquiry and religious tradition have been at odds over explanations of the world and how humans interact with it. This has become increasingly evident in the 21st century as interactions between social, political and religious agendas have become more strained. This course will examine the complex dynamic between the scientific worldview and religious alternatives. Can they be reconciled? Should they be? Specific areas to be studied include, but are not limited to, the nature of scientific and religious dialogue, the role of religion and spirituality, empirical studies of religious practices and the development of secular ethics.
