RELIGST 220: Religion and Politics: Past and Present (RELIGST 320)

The modern world is essentially defined by its conscious break with the past. Religion, in contrast, often emphasizes the enduring relevance of a specific moment in history, as well as the subsequent tradition which arises in its wake. In this course, we will read the works of several philosophers and theologians from the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions who have attempted to resolve the tension between these two facts by critically engaging modernity from a religious perspective or creatively engaging religion from a modern perspective. Our readings will cover various issues related to ethics, science, gender, and ontology, and by the end of the course students will be able to think philosophically and critically about the nature of both religion and modernity. Our selections will include writings from Muhammad Iqbal, Fazlur Rahman, Gillian Rose, Soren Kierkegaard, Sarah Coakley, Abraham Joshua Heschel, and more. nUndergraduates register for 200-level for 5 units.
