Humanities Colloquium Drake Faculty undertaking reseach in the Humanities offer insights into their current work as the basis for discussion during occasional Friday-afternoon meetings throughout the year.
The Comparison Project is an experimental effort in a philosophy of religion that is historically grounded and religiously diverse. Each year it explores a religious topic or problematic through a series of scholar lectures, interfaith dialogues, and philosophical comparisons. It offsets the traditional emphasis on theism in the philosophy of religion by attending to some of the neglected and marginalized religions of the world. It serves the ends of religious literacy and interfaith dialogue in the community, but also aims to produce knowledge in the comparative philosophy of historical religions.
