Religion, Philosophy and Ethics is a lively and contemporary subject which deals with some of the most important issues of our time. Our society is multi-cultural and multi-religious, and this provides opportunities and challenges. It is essential that people are better informed about the subject, in the interests of mutual respect and understanding. As a student of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics, you may come from any faith or none. You will be open-minded, questioning and interested in what motivates people to live and believe within a religious tradition. You will want to study in a learning culture of respect and tolerance for people and their religious beliefs and practices. Religion, philosophy and ethics have always been closely related. Religious traditions play an important role in shaping the way that we approach questions like, ‘what does it mean to be human?’ or ‘what is justice?’ and philosophers have had an influence on the development of religious and ethical thought throughout history. This course will introduce you to some of the most important topics in these areas, and give you a full understanding of their interaction historically and in contemporary contexts.
