Five Proofs for the Existence of God

About the Course

This course is unique in that it revolves around scholastic arguments for God’s existence in light of modern developments in philosophy of religion and the natural sciences, making this extremely relevant in light of the growing atheism we see today. While the course itself is dense, it requires no prerequisites in philosophy, theology or science.

Course Overview

This course takes you through Dr. Edwards Feser’s most recent book, Five Proofs for the Existence of God. This book contains five chapters which demonstrate different arguments for God’s existence, and two chapters on natural theology which seek to rebut any charges against the proofs laid out in the book. In addition to completing the content of the book, participants will have an introductory lesson on logic to help appreciate the discussions better. This course is unique in that it revolves around scholastic arguments for God’s existence in light of modern developments in philosophy of religion and the natural sciences, making this extremely relevant in light of the growing atheism we see today. While the course itself is dense, it requires no prerequisites in philosophy, theology or science.

Key Objectives

The goal of this program is for participants:

  • To appreciate the different kinds of arguments for God’s existence
  • To acknowledge and understand the challenges theism faces in contemporary philosophy and modern science
  • To be able to think critically and independently about the arguments
  • To understand how interdisciplinary inquiries work
