How the course is structured:

The leading views on religion from the most prominent thinkers of the last 2000 years will be discussed in-depth throughout this course. Starting with Socrates and landing in contemporary existential and nihilistic views on philosophy, we cover all philosophers and religious thought from ancient times to modern day practices.

The course presents its audience with both evidence of God’s existence, as well as explanations for why not believing in God is also justified for the skeptics out there. Moreover, it also points out when politics tends to take over, and how to differentiate between political practices and religion.

The course is aimed to be absolutely objective and does not single out any religious or spiritual belief. The instructor rarely presents his views, but when he does he strives to give both sides of the philosophers’ arguments on all issues presented.
