Philosophy and Theology or Religion, Philosophy and Ethics?Watch
The courses seem similar but some unis offer both or only one or the other. I know this is the area I'm interested in but I'm confused about what the difference is and which I should pick? If anyone studies either of these or knows anything about these courses that might be useful please help me out!
Ignore the degree title, it's not important (many universities have different names for essentially the same thing) - focus on the modules, which degree has the most interesting modules?
Thank you! I was more just wondering what the exact difference was because for example Nottingham offers both Philosophy and Theology and Religion Philosophy and Ethics so I was wondering if one degree is better for one thing or another.
Philosophy and Theology: A generalised study of philosophy, incl. ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, etc. and theology generally refers to Christianity and the study of the Bible so the focus would be on that rather than other religions.
Religion, Philosophy and Ethics: A stronger focus on the philosophy of religion and how religion can play an important role in our understanding of ethics (probably also including some political theory as religion can play an important role on political rulings - e.g. Christianity's influence on British law, Sharia law, etc.) and a bigger overview of more religions (e.g. Islam, Hindi, etc.)
