RLG333H1: Religion, Irreligion, and the Meaning of Life


Humans ask no more important question than: "what is the meaning of life?" Given its significance, the question should be asked as thoughtfully as possible. This requires us to understand not only the various religious and philosophical answers (to choose wisely you must know your options), but also the question’s terms ("what do 'meaning' and 'life' mean?") and historical conditions (is the question pressing perennially or only in secular societies where life has lost its meaning?). In this course students learn how to ask the question of life’s meaning well in the hopes that thereby they live better, more meaningful lives.
