Course Description: The course offers an overview of the main arguments for theistic belief (the cosmological, teleological and ontological arguments) and the main arguments against theistic belief (the logical argument from evil, the evidential argument from evil, and Hume's arguments from evil). We also relate these debates to different forms of theism, including Greek philosophical theism, Christian theism, and Confucian theism.
