Greetings Toronto Philosophers,
As you may know we've been doing a lot on the philosophy of mind, and it's time to switch it up a little. I thought we would have a few sessions on the philosophy of religion. This topic is great in terms of conceptual/analytical debates because it talks about absolutes. We'll run into all kinds of brain twisters as we take a look at causation, coming into being, eternity, goodness, perfection, freedom, etc, in the context of theological arguments. Also, I think that this will make for a natural segue into other things, such as the philosophy of science.
Here's a link to some Philosophy of Religion lectures from the University of Oxford. These were suggested by a member of our group (thank you Anthony Draper)! For Monday, Sept. 23, we'll cover lectures 1 and 2. (There are handouts there as well).
So, please take a listen. This is a big topic - we'll have fun with this! And see you in a week.
