Christian Philosophy

PHIL 200 -Introduction to Christian Philosophy

All philosophy is based upon a belief system and thus is religious in nature and scope. This is an overview of various trends and ideas in Philosophy including some of the more influential personalities from the ancients through to the Modern era.

This course will provide an overview of major areas of philosophical thought—such as epistemology, metaphysics, and ethics—as well as major thinkers in the history of the human philosophical tradition. Emphasis will be placed on how the various issues that come up in the history of philosophical thought ultimately must be seen in the context of the antithesis between Christian and non-Christian worldviews and the practical implications of these ideas in Christian and non-Christian ethics.
