Section Information for Fall 2017

What is sacred and what is secular? Is religion concerned more about the sacred than the secular? The traditional dichotomy of “secular” and “sacred” has been critically challenged as we now live in a “secular city” and a “secular age.”  This course is an attempt to discover the nature of sacred and secular by exploring the intrinsic dynamics of these two aspects of human experience. The course will study the significance of secularity found in some of the sacred traditions of East and West and it will also include some contemporary discussions on the nature of sacred and secular.
