About the Event
Perhaps because we often think of religious belief as being personal, we tend to avoid rigorous discussion of religious claims. This summer, we tackled the hard questions posed by religion: Does God exist? If so, what could we know about God? How could a good and all-powerful God permit evil? Can reason alone lead us to God? We read authors from various traditions and perspectives, including Aquinas, Maimonides, C.S. Lewis, and David Hume. As always, we also explored the Stanford Campus on field trips that deepened our discussions.
This camp was led by Dr. Molly Oshatz.
