RELST 2273 Introduction to Religious Studies (REQUIRED FOR THE MAJOR)
Topic: Sensational Religion
3 credits K. Haines-Eitzen MW 2:55-4:10 (GHB) (CA-AS)
This course explores the relationships between the senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, and tasting), emotions (fear, happiness, sadness, etc.), and religion, especially religious practices and experience in history and our contemporary world.
I gained a sense of the philosophical and moral complexity of life, and came to appreciate that the dichotomies and categories that we create for ourselves are constructs to aid in objectification.
