Assignment 2: Theology and Philosophy
For Week 2, address the following in a 3-4 page paper:
This assignment is designed to encourage you to understand the difference between philosophy and religion and to reflect upon the nature of God from a philosophical rather than religious perspective. After completing this week’s readings, write a 3-4 page essay explaining a philosophical account of the nature and existence of God. Finally, compare this philosophical theory to your own religious belief. What are the similarities and differences between your personal beliefs about God and the philosophical accounts of God we have studied this week? For instance, what is the role of faith? Of rational reflection?
