Religion, Conflict and Peace | HarvardX


[MUSIC PLAYING] DIANE MOORE: Are religions
inherently negative forces in contemporary human experience,
as many critics claim? Or are religions always
sources for human flourishing, as people of faith and
defenders of faith often assert? Is religious extremism and the
violence associated with it the true face of religion? Or is religious extremism
a perversion of faith, enacted by those who
misrepresent or misunderstand the true heart of all religions? In Religion, Conflict, and Peace
in Contemporary Global Affairs, we’ll explore how both of these
common and widespread assertions about religion are equally
problematic and how a more nuanced and sophisticated
understanding of the power of religion in human experience can generate
fresh insights and creative solutions to some of the world’s most
intractable challenges. Join us. [MUSIC PLAYING]
