This unit introduces students to the subfield Philosophy of Religion, from a cross-cultural perspective. It provides an overview of central topics, including the nature of existence, free will, immorality, and life after death. The unit's central case study is an examination of debates about reason and belief. How are these modes of knowledge understood and valued? How are they understood to relate to one another? Are they the only options available? What role do they play in understanding cultural difference and religious practice in the contemporary world?
