Religion in Question

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

12 week course exploring non-faith based approaches to religion


Does religion have any enduring meaning, value, or use? According to the philosopher Jürgen Habermas, the “… cognitive substance [of religion] has not yet been totally exhausted.”

When approached from a naturalistic – rather than a faith-based – perspective, religion is puzzling.

Examining religion from multiple points of view, allows us to move beyond sterile debates for and against its truth. By thinking of religion as a collection of intellectual, imaginative, and emotional resources, we can constructively evaluate its purpose, meaning, value, and uses.

All, of faith or not, are welcome. Please note that these seminars follow a philosophical method of open, interactive enquiry which does not aim either to promote or to oppose particular religious views.
