Current Courses

CCHU9065 A Life Worth Living • 2020-21, Semester 2
What does it mean to live a worthy life? This is one of the most fundamental questions of human existence and this course addresses this question through an engagement with various philosophical and religious traditions, including contemporary advocates of those traditions (by interview). These traditions include Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Christianity, Islam and Secular Humanism. We discuss how the teachings of important historical figures from these traditions have influenced the choices of people over the centuries, and how they have been adopted in contemporary society. We examine how these figures regard the place of bodily pleasures, intellectual pursuits, power, status, possessions, accomplishments, virtues, relationship with other human beings and the relationship (or not) with the transcendent in their vision of a good life.

CCHU9061 Science and Religion: Questioning Truth, Knowledge and Life • 2020-21, Semester 2
Science and religion are two of the most significant influences shaping human life and culture. Are they in conflict or in harmony? This course will encourage students to question their assumptions about both science and religion and the relationship between the two, and to gain new insights on the meaning of truth, knowledge and life. We will consider the intersection of science and religion in the following questions : “what is true?” “what is real?” “what counts as legitimate knowledge?” “do emotion, passion and faith have a role in science?” “does rationality have a role in religion?” “what are the moral dimensions of science and religion?” “where do we come from and where are we going?”
