Whether you consider yourself a religious person or not, or whether you think religion has played a positive or negative role in history, it is an incontrovertible fact that from the beginning of time, humans have engaged in activities that we now call religion, such as worship, prayer, and rituals marking important life passages.

Religious studies and theology graduate schools offer four doctoral degrees: the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), the Doctor of Education (EdD), the Doctor of Ministry (DMin), and the Doctor of Theology (ThD). In the remaining pages, I will critique each point of view in turn and then suggest a more adequate way of dealing with religious diversity, an approach equally appropriate to monotheistic and nonmonotheistic religions, though more urgently needed by monotheists because of the seriousness of their problems with religious diversity.

The Center builds upon Berkeley's long tradition and exemplary reputation in the field, and looks forward to fruitful exchanges with other institutions and with the Bay Area Jewish community. Næss maintains that the deep satisfaction that we receive from identification with nature and close partnership with other forms of life in nature contributes significantly to our life quality. (One clear historical antecedent to this kind of nature spiritualism is the romanticism of Jean-Jacques Rousseau as expressed in his last work, the Reveries of the Solitary Walker) When Næss’s view crossed the Atlantic, it was sometimes merged with ideas emerging from Leopold’s land ethic (see Devall and Sessions 1985; also see Sessions (ed) 1995).
