Topics covered include the nature of knowledge and reality, the relationship between the mind and brain, the possibility of free will, the ethical implications of scientific advances and the justification of moral, political and legal institutions.
In religious studies, our students investigate all aspects of religion and its impact on human affairs; and they examine various interpretations of religion, including religion as a social construction, as a psychological phenomenon, as a form of metaphysics and as a constellation of ritual practices.
