PHI6370 Free Will & Religion
This module focuses on philosophical questions about the relationship between free will and religion. Historically, theistic religions have been dogged by questions concerning the nature of human agency, for instance on account of the traditional conception of God as omniscient and hence as having full foreknowledge. The module will examine philosophical conceptions of the relationship between religious states of affairs and positions regarding the status of human action, by considering relevant historical developments within theology and philosophy.
This module is also available to undergraduates as PHI370.
If there are three or more postgraduates taking the module, a separate seminar will be scheduled for postgraduates only.
