Title Introducing the philosophy of religion
Description
  • <p>In this course, you will consider the meanings of the key terms &#x2018;God’ and &#x2018;religion’; identify some key questions in the philosophy of religion; think about the difference between philosophical and non-philosophical questions about religion; and look at the often-discussed question of whether argument and evidence are even possible when we are thinking about religion. Then we will note the variety of possible ways of arguing for or against God’s existence; distinguish three different arguments; and describe and assess one of them in more detail.</p><p>This free course is an adapted extract from the Open University course <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/a222.htm?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">A222 <i>Exploring philosophy</i></a></span>.</p>
