Hu/Ph240 The Search for God: Our Relationship with the Sacred 4 credits
Why am I here? What is the soul? Who or what is God? What is the meaning of life? How can I find my path in the world? These are enduring questions humans have asked themselves for millennia. By exploring such questions, the class will provide students a deeper understanding of the universe, the sacred and ourselves. Not a comparative religion class, this is instead a “thought” course, one which pushes students to delve deeply into their own personal beliefs concerning society, the sacred, their place in the scheme of the universe and how to live a just and honorable life. Discussions, guest speakers, videos, journaling and presentations challenge students to expand their awareness by considering diverse viewpoints on the sacred and humanity’s role in the world.
