Question by Oliver Ford: History, Politics, Economics, Religion and Philosophy, a good combination to study law at a Russel Group Uni?
Or should I swap Religion and Philosophy with Englsih Lit?

Best answer:

Answer by ?
religion and philosophy will give you a deeper understanding of people in law cases than english lit. to be honest you have everything you need right there for law they all support the background knowlegde you need for it. I honestly dont think you should change them as for a russel group uni you need 3 top subjects and you already have them.

What determines if a statement or question is philosophical or philosophy or not?

Question by CowBlow: What determines if a statement or question is philosophical or philosophy or not?
Can’t “spirituality” be a metaphysics or Philosophy?

What determines a question / statement is a philosophical point of view or ‘something else’ spiritual ?

If I were to question or say….

“Is there a god?” There is no God, but the universe is a god/god is in all of us? ….. or……..God is real and tangible but has nothing to do with us (deist)? .. are those religious, philosophical, or spiritual?

How about… a question of the afterlife? how can that be philosophical instead of religious.

Reason why i asked is because Buddhism sometimes is considered a philosophy and not a religion.

Best answer:

Answer by ?
If you are trying to reason something out, using only logic, intellect and cognitive processes … then that is philosophy.

If you are accepting anything on the basis of believing it (no cognitive processes involved) … then that is religion.

If you have ideas, but insist on trying them out in the real world, to determine if they hold up … then you are either practicing the scientific method OR you are a Buddhist.

Buddhism – actually – is neither a philosophy nor a religion.

Do you think of Confucianism as a religion or a philosophy?

Question by RachelAnnieXO: Do you think of Confucianism as a religion or a philosophy?
We’re studying Confucianism in World Religions and I feel like it’s more of a philosophy than a religion, especially when K’ung Fu-Tzu addresses education. Given your answer, would you say someone who is a Christian could easily adopt Confucianism in addition to their beliefs?

Best answer:

Answer by Jerry
it is false

What sounds more interesting? Philosophy of Religion or Religion in the American Experience?

Question by [=: What sounds more interesting? Philosophy of Religion or Religion in the American Experience?
I’m trying to decide which class to take. Religion in the American Experience fits better into my schedule, but I feel like it’s only going to be about Puritans and Christians and all sorts of religious communities that I’ve already learned about in U.S. History and one of my English classes in high school. Philosophy of Religion would mean I have to wake up at 7 am to attend the 8 am class and have 4 classes in one day, but it seems like a more comparative religion class… I don’t know!
This is the description for philosophy of religion:
Nature of religion; existence and nature of God; religion and meaning, values and knowledge.

Best answer:

Answer by Jenova
The first one.

Only if they put an “s” after the word “Religion”.

EDIT: Seriously, it is the professor I’d be weighing to make a difference in choosing between the two. My university experiences taught me to identify professor than to identify the subject.

With the right material of a professor, your life will be changed forever.
