“Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion is.” – Thus argues Mahatma Gandhi. This course will consider philosophical explanations of what religion is, how its social and political effects can be described, and how it relates to political action, organisation and violence. We will discuss relevant thinkers and draw examples from traditions as diverse as Islam and Buddhism.
