PHI 210 World Religions

This introductory course places heavy emphases on Eastern religions, particularly Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. In each case, the central beliefs of each system are explored. In addition, given contemporary world events Islam is also examined in detail. Judaism and Christianity are explored in lesser detail. The course is not intended to compare these faiths, but rather to expose the student to world views substantially different from that in mainstream U.S. religious thought.
