This course is often associated with Philosophy of Religions and aims to provide a graduate-level presentation of the main World Religions for students interested in interfaith/interreligious studies. Students are encouraged to consider the worldview aspects not only of Christianity vs Islam but also of the modern secular (agnostic) worldview vs both Christianity and Islam. Finally, an historical and geopolitical perspective is encouraged (for major paper topics).
