HONR 1030 - Faith and Reason in Global Perspective

4 credit hours
Formerly - HONR 103
This course examines Christian, Islamic, and Jewish medieval traditions through the study of their shared critical appropriation of Plato and Aristotle and synthesis of classical philosophy with theology and scripture. Some of the central questions are: What is the relationship between faith and reason and between theology and philosophy? Does God exist? Can the existence of God be proven? What is the nature of sin and evil? What does it mean to be human? Are human beings free? What is the soul? What role does embodiment play in being human? Authors studied include, for example, Augustine, Boethius, Avicenna, Anselm, Maimonides, Bonaventure, Aquinas, and Ockham.
