REL 251 - Religion, Philosophy, and the Good Life

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
What is the good life? A happy life? A meaningful life? A virtuous life? A life of rich relationships with others? A combination of some or all of these? And does inquiring into the good life help us achieve it? If so, how? We explore these questions and others by considering how different philosophical and religious traditions have sought to understand and guide human life and by reflecting on our own lives and experiences.

Prerequisite: REL 101 REL 102 REL 103 REL 104 REL 105 , one 100-level Philosophy course, or second-year standing.
