PY 307H - The Self and Beyond II: Psychology and Spirituality

3 Credits
This course will focus on Christian spirituality and, more specifically, it will look at the literary form of the spiritual autobiography as a way to gain insight into this tradition. The presupposition is that spirituality is that which drives human beings to make life choices and that Christian spirituality originates out of the attempt to make sense of the Biblical tradition in one’s own life. It should be clear, then, that spirituality is about the very question of the self, i.e., the construction of one’s self through life choices. It should also be clear that spirituality is intimately connected to psychology, if we understand this to be the factors (genetic, biological, environmental, etc.) which influence the way a person thinks about him- or herself. Prerequisite: PY 306H  or RS 306H . (This course may also be taken as RS 307H )
