Do we need God for the good life?

The development of an undergraduate course that addresses issues relating to the good life, including God's existence or non-existence, human nature, human fulfillment, and moral growth.

The enduring question to be addressed in this course is "Do we need God for the good life?" By examining this question from a variety of perspectives, students in this course will not only appreciate the pluralism that exists with respect to the possible answers to this question, but they will also see how a variety of disciplines relate to it. The readings and discussion in class will draw from texts in philosophy, religion, biology, history, and literature.
