Philosophy of Religion I | Dominican University College

Through a critical assessment of philosophical discourses on religion in modernity, this course will attempt to map out the current definitions of religions, their anthropological, ethical and metaphysical conditions and claims. This course will be attentive to their limits and relations to definitions produced by sociological and psychoanalytical discourses. The lectures will focus on religious behaviours and acts, and their effects on individuals and groups. This course is not about "God". It will define the place and function of the images and ideas about the divine in religion.
