I’m gearing up for a course I’m teaching at Kilns College this winter/spring called The History and Philosophy of Atheism.
This class ties together all of my favorite subjects… philosophy, history, religion and science. Can’t wait!!
Here is the course description:
The purpose of this course is to look at the historical development and philosophical arguments of Atheism from the Ancient Greeks to the contemporary New Atheism movement. Along the way this course will address faith, doubt, skepticism, science and religion, and take a look at logic, debate, culture and the media. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the God/no god debate, and will be able to better understand and articulate the reasons for their own beliefs. Students will also develop a deeper understanding of church history, including many of the lesser-known topics such as the Inquisition and the Crusades.
The class starts the 3rd week of January on Tuesday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
