Humanism and Religion (Spring term) (PHL 04)

  • Day and time: Friday 15:00 - 16:30
    Weekly
  • Length of course: 1 term. Spring (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 10
  • Start date: 15 January 2021
  • Description:

    This class explores widely varying religious beliefs and non-beliefs. The principal aims are to learn about humanist thinking and the major religions of the world, what they may have in common and what divides them, and how they may have contributed to the greater good (or otherwise) of the world. This is undertaken through listening to presentations from a wide range of religious and non-religious practitioners, and by questioning and discussing practices and values. In these ways we can learn and clarify our own thoughts and beliefs in a discursive and supportive context. Participation in discussions is encouraged so we can learn from each other.
