Content

This unit introduces students to the major ‘world religions’: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  The unit explores these religions by looking at their historical development, basic ideas, practices and sacred texts. In addition, students are introduced to a range of philosophical issues that arise within these religious traditions, such as: karma and rebirth; the relation between self and world, and self and God; different conceptions of God and salvation or liberation; and the question of how to understand the phenomenon of religious diversity.
