Why should philosophers & theologians talk to each other? 1 min 52 secs.  
We are very excited that the Master of the Order will attend the colloquium, joining participants from over 40 academic institutions from the US and 8 other countries! 
This colloquium, the first in what is planned to be a triennial series on the intersection between philosophy and theology, seeks to continue the venerable Dominican tradition of bringing together philosophers and theologians to explore the theological implications of contemporary work in philosophy, as well as philosophical questions that emerge from theological inquiry. How can recent developments in Analytic, Phenomenological, Thomist, and other schools of thought give new life to the concerns of theology? What current theological themes present challenges or opportunities for philosophy? The theme of this first colloquium is intentionally broad, so as to raise issues for further exploration in the series.
