God and the Good Life: An Introduction to Philosophy

In God and the Good Life, students have the opportunity to consider, discuss, and debate the big questions surrounding what makes a life moral and what makes a life meaningful. The course tackles such issues as what justifies our beliefs, whether we should practice a religion, and what sacrifices we should make for others. Using classic philosophical texts, real-world case studies, and interactive digital tools, students search for answers and explore their beliefs in both large-group discussions and small intensive Sustained Dialogue groups led by former GGL students. Over the semester students compose a philosophical apology -- an essay describing how they've developed their answers to the big questions and defending their beliefs using rigorous arguments.
