Learning outcomes

Philosophy of religion is the meeting point between the philosophical ability to ask questions and the centrality of theological themes within western culture. It brings in important issues that affect human conduct as such, individual and social. The issues are discussed taking into account the historical context, but with prevailing theoretical commitment. Knowledge and various skills (historical, political, legal, theological) are part of this discipline as proper setting for further interdisciplinary developments.
