The Concept of God 2013 fall
(The Concept of God)

This course concerns the concept of God found in traditional, Western philosophical theology. We will attempt to arrive at clear formulations of concepts such as omniscience, omnipotence and absolute goodness, as well as eternality, simplicity, immutability and necessary existence. And we will examine whether they are consistent with each other and with creaturely freedom, contingency and the existence of evil. A 4000 word term paper will be due at the end of the term.
