PHIL 293 - God, Freedom, and Evil

(3)
FA. How should we reconcile the existence of evil with the Christian claim that everything that exists is created and sustained by a perfectly good being, God? To help answer this question, this course offers a sustained philosophical reflection on the nature of God and issues related to divine providence in Christian thought. The course addresses questions such as how best to understand human freedom, the relationship between divine providence and human freedom, and how to reconcile divine providence with the existence of evil in the world. An emphasis is placed on philosophical reflection and discussion, constructing and evaluating arguments, reading and interpreting philosophical texts, writing clear expository prose, and engaging in faith-oriented and faith-based inquiry. One previous religion class recommended. Not offered in 2022-23.
