-  This course is an introduction to the philosophy of religion. We will consider questions such as: What is religion? What is religious experience? Is there a distinct kind of religious knowledge? How should we understand the relationship between religion and science? What is the relationship between religion and spirituality? We will approach these questions through texts drawn from a variety of European, American, and Asian philosophical and religious traditions. The format will be lecture and focused discussion of the readings. No prior knowledge of philosophy or of any particular religion is assumed.
