This course is an examination of the philosophical arguments for the existence of God—cosmological, ontological, teleological, moral, and experiential or mystical—as found in the work of such philosophers as Plato, Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Leibniz, Kant, Paley, Kierkegaard, and Buber. The historical development of these various proofs will be studied, including Hume's skeptical arguments against them as well as what has existentially come to be called the I-Thou encounter and its relevance for the modern eclipse of God.
