Theological Predication and Divine Attributes
TH 1:30pm - 3:20pm
An exploration of philosophical debates concerning the nature of theological language and the nature of God. Topics include theories of analogical predication, divine simplicity, God’s relation to time, divine impassibility, the nature of God’s love, divine freedom, the compatibility of foreknowledge and human freedom, and theories of providence.
None, but previous work in philosophy would certainly be helpful.
Weekly reading, seminar participation, five 2-3 pg. response papers, two 6-8 page papers OR one 15-20 page paper.
Participation (10%), response papers (30%), paper(s) (60%).
