The course acknowledges that the ongoing relevance and power of religion is related to its entanglement with every facet of human development and experience. Its primary question and angle of exploration is the relation between religion, as a process of world-making and leadership. Through examination of everyday practices, commitments, contemporary crises, and case studies from various religious traditions, and iconic figures, the course investigates and analyses individual and collective agency in trying to build new worlds across time. While the main goal is to explore and raise awareness concerning the intersections between religion and various expressions of leadership, it seeks to go beyond mere analysis. It also explores forms of imagined leadership and communities that are likely to emerge in a world in which humans are filled with phenomenal powers. Considering the above, the following learning goals, outcomes and performance indicators are relevant to the course and its exploration of the relation to the intersection between religion and leadership:
