At the conclusion of this module, students will be able to: 

  • Distinguish the mode of thinking characteristic of faith from that of reason. 
  • Define the proper relationship between faith and reason. 
  • Explain how the apparent conflict between religion and science, so distinctive of modernity, is a part of the general problem of the relationship between faith and reason, and identify ways in which this conflict can be lessened through a better understanding of the limits of both faith and reason.
