New Age Spirituality

RLG 2000

This course provides a systematic analysis with case studies of contemporary, non-ecclesiastical Western religiosity. This analysis is based partly on skeptically revalued traditional Biblical spirituality, but mainly on a new exploration of universal divinity within the individuality that merges with a synthesis of Gnostic teachings, Eastern religious philosophies and psychologies (mostly Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist ones), and claims to represent an up-to-date interface between science and religion.
