Debating Philosophy of Religion
If you are a student in Years 11, 12 or 13 and interested in philosophical questions, then this workshop will give you a fantastic opportunity to engage with current undergraduates studying Philosophy of Religion at the University of Cambridge. You'll hear a short introductory lecture, work in teams to plan an argument, and then have the chance to take part in a debate with other participants.
This workshop will demonstrate a range of Philosophy of Religion topics that are covered in a Theology degree and allow you to engage with one of these in more depth. You will be helped by current undergraduates who will guide you through written texts and share their learning.
You do not need to be studying Religious Studies or Philosophy and Ethics at school or be thinking of going on to university. We are looking for students who are interested in problems of language, knowledge and being which arise at the intersection between philosophy and theology.
The Faculty of Divinity has recently changed the name of its undergraduate degree to 'Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion'. This is to better demonstrate the breadth of our course and the continuity it can provide for students who are interested in studying Philosophy at A-level.
