Philosophy and Religious Thought
The course's primary focus is on the way in which religious traditions represent strands of philosophical thought and its development. A major concern is the interplay between secular philosophy and religious reflection and analysis. The balance of provision will enable you to develop your philosophical skills and understanding. A foundational feature of the course will be its engagement with you via the use of primary texts and a focus on developing you as a sophisticated reader and writer. This is partnered with an ongoing endeavour of promoting philosophy as transformational, as practical and as a living tradition of engagement with the wider world.
Students will need at least a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent; international students need IELTS 6.5 overall (no less than 6.0 in writing and 5.5 in any other band) or equivalent.
Modules include: Philosophy and religious tradition; Buddhism and philosophy: middle-ways; Islam and philosophy: 1 god, varied positions; continental philosophy of religion; philosophy and wisdom as practice.
