This module investigates the relationship between theology and philosophy. One theme is usually used as a focus for the entire course, for example: ‘faith and reason’, ‘evil’, ‘divine and human action’, ‘language/semiotics’, ‘religious epistemology’, etc. The aim of the module is to familiarise students with the most important positions, movements and schools in Philosophical Theology. The module discusses texts from the Continental tradition, Analytic Philosophy of Religion and Russian Religious Philosophy. Prior knowledge of philosophical theology and philosophy of religion is an advantage, but no prerequisite to attend the module.
