New! World Religion Series: Ethical Insights of the World’s Major Religions
5 sessions, 10 hours
This course is a journey that reflects on the ethical systems of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, indigenous traditions, and Taoism. We will look at general viewpoints and how each tradition’s core values affect behavior and priorities in the contemporary world. We’ll study issues of identity, authority, personal and family life, equality, right and wrong, conflict, violence, and global issues which impact everyone. This is a nonsectarian, respectful, and brief overview of the variety and shared moral foundations of these five world traditions.
