This course will introduce the student to philosophy through a consideration of various theistic and non-theistic worldviews, giving attention to the historical departure from Christian theism in Western civilization and focusing on current thinking with respect to worldview options. The student will be introduced to the concepts of secular humanism, mystical humanism, modernism, and post-modernism, with a special emphasis on how these compare and contrast to Christian theism. Attention will be given to how the underlying presuppositions of these ways of viewing reality affect one’s ability to think and evaluate his or her world and to how presuppositions relate to morality and ethics.
