MCSI 195 PZ -Divine Hiddenness and Human Suffering


Institution: Pitzer

Description: What are we to make of divine silence in the face of human suffering? Why does it present a serious intellectual challenge to believe in God? How does one reconcile human suffering and divine hiddenness? What is the relation between divine hiddenness and the problem of evil? In this seminar, we set to address these questions and others by examining different philosophical perspectives that pertain to different theological traditions (mainly Jewish, Christian, and Islamic) and to nonbelievers. In addition, we explore different philosophical accounts of the concept of human suffering and its relation to human existence. 

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
