Ethical Reasoniong. Faith and Resaon Theology. Humans, Animals, and Nature: Ecologies of Religion. This course explores the relations between humans, animals, and nature as those relationships are depicted, understood, and influenced by religious thought and practice. Religion builds human self-understanding by providing answers to questions such as: "What are animals? What are they for? What are humans and what are we for? How should we live together on the land?" The specific answers given to these questions as well the way those answers are put into practice has varied substantially across history and culture. The course focuses on Christian theology, but other religious traditions are engaged in a comparative manner as well.
