Content

This unit undertakes a critical examination of the reasoning behind theologies and philosophical arguments in the major religions, Western and Asian. The issues range from the existence of God and the problem of evil to the status of the self and the nature of ultimate realty. Traditional Western theistic claims are explored alongside Eastern non-theistic pluralist approaches and tested against contemporary critiques from secularism, science, and new atheism.
