L'università di Oxford attiverà il corso online "Philosophy of religion"
da mercoledì 26 settembre 2018
a venerdì 7 dicembre 2018
Il corso è in lingua inglese
The areas you will cover in this course are:
- Introduction – Reason and the Philosophy of Religion.
- The Concept of God: An introduction to the classical theistic concept of God as a being who is necessarily personal, transcendent, immanent, omnipotent, omniscient, eternal, perfectly free, perfectly good, and necessary; and non-essentially creator of the world and value; revealer of Himself; and offerer of everlasting life. A detailed discussion of each of these properties and the philosophical issues that they raise with a view to determining the overall coherence (or lack of it) and simplicity (or lack of it) of the classical theistic concept of God.
- Arguing For and Against the Existence of God: A discussion of whether or not belief or the absence of belief in such a God might be the sort of thing that does not rationally require argument and, if not, what the criteria for a good argument for or against such a God’s existence might be. A discussion of the main arguments for and against the existence of God: the Argument to Design; the Cosmological Argument; the Ontological Argument; the Argument from Religious Experience; and the Argument from Apparent Miracles.
- Conclusion: A discussion of the nature and role (if any) of faith and Pascal’s Wager. An opportunity for each student to discuss what (if anything) he or she feels he or she has gained from the course.
