To what extent do religious prescriptions for 'how things should be' derive from philosophical descriptions of 'how things are?' If natural philosophy is understood to be descriptive of nature, and religion is understood as intending to be explicative of nature (and explicative of the descriptions given by philosophy), then the relationship among philosophy, science, and religion might be mutually illuminative. This course will examine this relationship from the standpoint of metaphysics as a bridge between philosophical theology and natural philosophy.
