學分: 3
時間: 45小時
先修單元: GEN1000 Perspectives on General Education
Religions deal with the fundamental concern of the meaning of human existence. Does life really have any meaning-any real meaning-or do we just live and die in a small frame of a pointless, accidental cycle of the universe? In such concerns we are dealing with the spiritual quest of our human consciousness with a history of religions. In this module, students are invited to explore (i) human engagement with what is considered to be the realm of sacred; (ii) its expression in thought, action/practices and social forms; (iii) its path of ultimate transformation.
Upon completion of this module, students should be able to:

  1. describe the nature, methodology and scope of theories of religion;

  2. identify key questions and answers of the study object from an inter-disciplinary approach.

  3. explain and critically evaluate various thoughts of religious traditions;

  4. develop their own argument, answer and experience to the questions of the study object;

  5. integrate the knowledge acquired from the module with daily life
