The theme this term is the Epistemology of Religion and, specifically, the investigation of the concept of ‘religious belief’.
    The course will begin with a brief outline of the concepts of knowledge and belief. Then, we will look at some ‘modern’ and (primarily) ‘recent’ texts bearing on religious belief, and see how they understand ‘(religious) belief’ (or faith) and its relation to belief, faith, reason, evidence, argument, proof, meaning, truth, and justification.
