What is religion? What does it mean to be religious? Are there good reasons to be religious? Is religious belief rational? Would it matter if it weren’t?

This summer, you can explore the influential answers scholars have given to these and similar questions in PHI 224, Meaning and Religious Belief, which is being offered during the 2015 May summer session (May 11–29). Class meets every weekday from 8 a.m. to 10:50 a.m.

PHI 224 is a general education course that counts toward Illinois State’s graduation requirements. PHI 224 also counts toward the philosophy major, the philosophy minor, and the religious studies minor.

Please contact Professor Daniel Breyer for more information about the course.
