ECON 306 - Power, Evil and Religion

Credits: 3

This course examines the nature of power and the origin and expressions of evil from an individual and cultural perspective.  Predictors of evil and specific cultural practices are analyzed.  The course then considers religion (including atheism) and the 'problem of evil' through information-seeking and game-play.  After reviewing the diverse cultural/religious responses, the unique evils due to religion and the future of evil are debated.  This course is designed for students of all majors seeking to understand the issues facing humanity today and for those who want to change the world tomorrow.
