REL 250 - Spirituality

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
As the number of people in the U.S. who claim to be “religious” decreases, the number of people who embrace what they call “spirituality” is increasing. What is it to be “spiritual”? And how is it related to being “religious”? We explore these questions historically and philosophically, consider the links between spirituality and capitalism, and reflect on the various experiences, practices, and ideas that different people describe as spiritual.

Prerequisite: REL 101 , REL 102 , REL 103 , REL 104 , REL 105 , or second-year standing.
Note: Not offered every year.
