RES 384 - Encountering Evil: Responses From World Religions


We study the problem of evil and suffering through the insights of the world’s religions as well as philosophers, social activists, and professionals responding to experiences of evil and suffering. We will examine evil and suffering by applying historical perspectives, religious explanations, and interlocking social structures. Traditional solutions offered by theodicy, the samsaric cycle of rebirth, philosophic systems, and social advocacy will be probed. Students will engage enduring questions in response to innocent suffering, unbridled evil, and institutionalized forms of oppression. Course Codes: BR. Prereq: PEQ in Religious Studies. Women’s Studies Minor Course.
