IDC 2750 - Religion and the Human Condition

3.00 credits.
World Cultures and International Studies Core Course. The Social World Core Course. Values, Choice, and Justice Core Course. Using Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and perspectives from “Eastern” and so-called “primal” religions, this course examines three interrelated topics: 1) Religious teachings regarding the human condition; 2) Religious traditions’ responses to the human condition and 3) the behavior of those who claim to be followers of a religious tradition. The course will conclude with a look at what constitutes a “true” follower of a tradition and how “true” followers act in relation to the norms of the prevailing culture.
