REL 295-01 - Special Topic: Spiritual–Not Religious

4 credits (Spring)
Over the past two hundred years, the discourse of “spirituality” has moved from the edges of theological and philosophical reflection on the essence of religion and the intersection of western and eastern religions, to become a way of thinking and living beyond religion, as “spiritual, not religious”. Where did this idea come from? What are the various meanings it holds for people? How does it contemporary practices of selfhood, political engagement, and economic investment?

Prerequisite: REL 101 REL 102 REL 103 , REL 104 REL 105 , or second-year standing.
