Topics in the Philosophy of Religion Philosophy in the West and religion in the West have often been entwined and sometimes stood in opposition. We will take up a selection of topics typically included in college-level Philosophy of Religion classes. Over four weeks we’ll discuss:1) Reason in the service of Belief: arguments about the existence of God. 2) Religion in the Age of Reason: Deism and Pantheism 3) 20th Century skepticism and doubt: Russell and Kurz. 4) Beyond Patriarchy: the feminist challenge to traditional theology. Class meetings will include lectures and discussions. Reading material will be provided.

Facilitator: Andy Simon is a First Unitarian Portland member and a retired professor of western philosophy and ethics.
