Instructor:

Michael W. Rota

This course examines philosophical arguments for and against the existence of God and for the claim that the Christian faith, in particular, has been revealed by God; it also considers how faith, reason, and doubt are related. Possible questions include: Are there any good arguments for God’s existence? Does the evil in the world make it unlikely there is a God? Are faith and reason (including the findings of science) compatible? Could it be reasonable to believe in certain foundational Christian claims such as that Jesus is divine, that Jesus founded and gave authority to the church, and that the Bible is the word of God? Does the plurality of religions undermine the particular claims of any one of them? Can one make religious commitments in a state of doubt about the evidence? This course can be used either to satisfy the third course in the core curriculum area of “Philosophy and Theology” or to satisfy one of the core curriculum requirements in “Integrations in the Humanities.” Prerequisite: PHIL 110 or PHIL 115.
