HONR 1030 - Faith and Reason in Global Perspective
4 credit hours
This course examines a variety of medieval traditions through the study of their critical appropriation and synthesis of classical philosophy with religion and theology. Some of the central questions considered are: What is the relationship between faith and reason and between theology and philosophy? 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, Ibn Tufayl, Maimonides, Zhu Xi, Dōgen, Aquinas, and Christine de Pizan.
