The Religious Studies Program offers courses that foster the understanding of world religions and their influence on human behavior and world affairs. Each essay has the flavor of a scholarly yet personal reflection on the paradox of how science and religion are enmeshed in the human experience. The difficulties that the existence of evil & suffering cause for the belief in a God who is both omnipotent & all-loving. Segal characterised the discipline as "a subject matter" that it "open to many approaches", and thus it "does not require either a distinctive method or a distinctive explanation to be worthy of disciplinary status." [4] Different scholars operating in the field have different interests and intentions; some for instance seek to defend religion, while others seek to explain it away, and others wish to use religion as an example with which to prove a theory of their own. [5] Some scholars of religious studies are interested in primarily studying the religion to which they belong. [6] Scholars of religion have argued that a study of the subject is useful for individuals because it will provide them with knowledge that is pertinent in inter-personal and professional contexts within an increasingly globalised world. [7] It has also been argued that studying religion is useful in appreciating and understanding sectarian tensions and religious violence. [8] Throughout the history of religious studies, there have been many attempts to define the term "religion". [9] Many of these have been monothetic, seeking to determine a key, essential element which all religions share, which can be used to define "religion" as a category, and which must be necessary in order for something to be classified as a "religion". [10] There are two forms of monothetic definition; the first are substantive, seeking to identify a specific core as being at the heart of religion, such as a belief in a God or gods, or an emphasis on power. [11] The second are functional, seeking to define "religion" in terms of what it does for humans, for instance defining it by the argument that it exists to assuage fear of death, unite a community, or reinforce the control of one group over another. [11] Other forms of definition are polythetic, producing a list of characteristics that are common to religion.

Stenger 's view is that science and religion are incompatible due to conflicts between approaches of knowing and the availability of alternative plausible natural explanations for phenomena that is usually explained in religious contexts. [31] Neuroscientist and author Sam Harris disagrees with Jerry Coyne and Daniel Dennett's narrow view of the debate and argues that it is very easy for people to reconcile science and religion because some things are above strict reason, scientific expertise or domains do not spill over to religious expertise or domains necessarily, and mentions "There simply IS no conflict between religion and science." [28] Richard Dawkins is hostile to fundamentalist religion because it actively debauches the scientific enterprise.

Tenure-track position in Chinese Religions at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning in August 2013. Reading assignments will be divided between close, exegetical analysis of small units of texts and the study of scholarly criticism of the same texts (commentaries, journal articles, critical notes). James (1902) proposed the much-quoted distinction between the religion of the healthy-minded and of the sick soul—perhaps more a distinction between personality types than between religious orientations per se.
