HNSM 168 - Love and Faith

3 Credit Hours
Love and faith are widely considered the most essential and profound of human experiences; at the same time, they are often seen in strictly emotional or irrational terms.  In this course we will explore the role of the intellect in love and faith. Does “thinking too much” necessarily hinder our ability to act in passionate relationships or to believe in God? How do we practice love and faith thoughtfully? The common text in the honors first-year seminars, Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov, will be our primary guide as we investigate these enduring questions.
