Oxford, Blackwell, 2008, 76) An objection raised against both the Thomistic- and the Leibnizian-type arguments is that they are demanding explanations which are unwarranted. This path has been followed by most of the rest of the leading figures in science and religion but also by a diverse group of scholars interested less in the recent "field" of science and religion than in more classical research concerns. Open only to students in the University Honors Program or by permission of instructor.

ABD's with a close completion date will be considered (with initial appointment at the rank of instructor). You will explore doctrinal, theological and ethical issues, including the diversity of global Catholicism today, internal and external debates, the significance of Catholic social teaching, and Catholic influences and expressions in material culture (art, literature, music). What is not so easily detachable is the claim that religious belief (unlike memory, perceptual beliefs, rational intuition) is produced by cognitive faculties or processes that are not aimed at the production of true belief.

The successful candidate will have a record of excellence in teaching and a promising record of research. The religiously unaffiliated make up a majority of the population in six countries, of which China is by far the largest. (The others are the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hong Kong, Japan and North Korea.) Most members of the other major religious groups live in countries in which they are in the minority. Today religious studies is practiced by scholars worldwide. [1] In its early years, it was known as Comparative Religion or the Science of Religion and, in the USA, there are those who today also know the field as the History of religion (associated with methodological traditions traced to the University of Chicago in general, and in particular Mircea Eliade, from the late 1950s through to the late 1980s).

Wilson's view is like Freud's, then, in that he too proposes that theistic belief is produced by cognitive faculties that are not reality oriented. Teleological arguments in the East go back as far as 100 C. The German-American Franz Boas worked in this vein and, in numerous studies, insisted upon the primacy of culture over inherent qualities of race, as well as on the most careful of ethnographic fieldwork. Regional focus is open; specialists in the religions of Latin America, Africa or China are especially encouraged to apply.

The Georgetown report seemed to have more information about earnings, but as has been mentioned here, that’s not a good measure of success. Smith once wrote a book whose title references Alfred Korzybski’s dictum that “the map is not the territory.” I’d consider this a vital lesson of my religious studies education: don’t mistake the names and categories we assign to things for the things themselves. HON 3390H The Problem of Evil: Is it reasonable to believe in an all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-good God, despite the appearance of pointless evil?

While awareness of religious diversity is not a new phenomenon, philosophers of religion from both the East and the West are becoming increasingly more aware of and interactive with religious others. Examining the nature and function of religion is therefore an essential part of a liberal arts education, helping students develop a richer understanding of men, women, and the world in which they live and work. My undergraduate alma mater is Indiana University (go Hoosiers!) and I earned my MA in Religious Studies from California State University Long Beach. (go 49′ers!) Bio/Research Interests: My research plan involves studying the evolution of the role of women in Islamic societies throughout history, with an emphasis on postcolonial era.

Hans Küng urges, as a first step, the development of an ecumenical and concrete theology for peace between Christians, Jews and Muslims (Küng, 1990). Few issues are more divisive than that of abortion - particularly in Northern Ireland where it remains illegal. I would like to welcome you to the departmental website and I invite you to contact me with any questions you may have about our programs. The academic buzzword for this is “interdisciplinarity.” It’s not an uncommon thing to hear a religion grad student say she’s planning to learn sociology, or economics, or Tibetan over the weekend.

Lifelong learning begins by involving all of one's life: body, mind, emotions and spirit. APU is ranked in the top 20% overall of online bachelor's degree programs by U. Students must fulfill the requirements for both programs, and up to 36 credits completed as part of the MA in Religious Studies will be counted toward the 75 credit PhD in International Relations.
