Religions, spiritualities, and ultimate questions

The study of religions and spiritualities also involves engagement with other disciplines and increasing awareness of complex worldviews. This can lead to dialogue about knowledge, truth claims, and consideration of ultimate ethical, epistemological, and metaphysical questions.

For example:

  • How do religious and spiritual ways of knowing relate to other types of learning?
  • What can be known about life, death, the mind, or the soul?
  • How do people find ultimate meaning in and through religions and/or spiritualities?
