Under the banner of "The program that questions everything...except your intelligence," this one-hour radio program promises "philosophy in action." It certainly delivers on that promise, and for anyone who thought philosophy was lifeless and without any real-world application, they will be proved wrong after just a few minutes of listening to this program. Hosted by Stanford philosophy professors Ken Taylor and John Perry, recent editions of the program have covered terrorism, love, intelligent design, justice, and of course, baseball. Visitors can dig into the archives, learn about upcoming shows, and they will not want to pass over their blog either. Overall, this program is intellectually rousing and one that could be used as supplementary resource for any number of philosophy courses. (less)

Religion and ethics are some of the most debated areas of the human experience around the world, so it is fitting that the BBC has created this online clearinghouse of relevant information and news coverage about these two complex topics. The site contains a number of general interest sections that provide rich discussion of various world religions and a number of subjects in the field of ethics, such as the ethics of war, euthanasia, human cloning, and genetic engineering. Visitors can also listen to broadcasts of the BBC's many programs devoted to exploring various religions, such as Missionaries, which looks at the legacy of missionary work around the world. Equally compelling are the fractious message boards where visitors can opine about various religious topics and ethical debates. The site is rounded out by an interactive multi faith calendar, which shows the religious festivals and celebrations of eight world faiths. (less)

Founded in 1949, the Religion Newswriters Association (RNA) works "to advance the professional standards of religion reporting in the secular press as well as to create a support network for religion reporters." Their site is a great place for current members of the RNA, but in many ways it's just as good for those who wish to cut their teeth in this important area of journalism. To start, visitors with an interest in the field may wish to read and download "Reporting on Religion: A Primer on Journalism's Best Beat". The primer offers a basic overview of reporting on religion, along with resources about potential pitfalls. Moving on, the site also has a set of "Best Practices", which includes such down-to-earth advice as "Rely on people power" and "Remain calm amid conflict". The site also includes a section on reporting contests, training opportunities, and a link where visitors can sign up to receive the latest religion news via email. (less)

This course is designed as a "topics-based" introduction to philosophy. What this means is that instead of working through the history of philosophy focusing on great historical figures and their views on different topics, we will focus on great philosophical topics and look at what historical and contemporary writers have said about them. Topics to be addressed will include the existence of God, the relation between the mind and the body, human freedom, and the foundations of morality. (less)
