HUMS 221 Afterlife

Division of Liberal Arts

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

The concept of an afterlife, that there is an immortal future which might either be a lamentable half-existence or a place that includes physical survival, rewards and punishments has been central in Western thought. By understanding different conceptions of what happens to us after we die, we really explore how the culture engages in continuous conscious reflection upon ethics, identity, tragedy, the nature of good and evil, repentance and forgiveness. In short, believes about the afterlife are perfect vehicles for us to understand how a given culture understands and values life itself.
