Religion in CrisisSemester Course

Religion in Crisis, elective course at DIS Copenhagen
Major Discipline(s)
Philosophy, Religious Studies
Elective Course
Fall/Spring semester

We explore the evolution of religious thinking in the 19th and early 20th centuries, much of which was a response to the Enlightenment demand that religion justify itself in terms of rationality. We examine authors such as Hegel, Feuerbach, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, James, Otto, Bultmann, Tillich, and Lindbeck. This course is interdisciplinary and includes readings and discussions relevant for philosophy, theology, and religious studies.
