2014 Dominican Colloquium

What Has Athens to do with Jerusalem?

Dialogue between Philosophy and Theology in the 21st Century

July 12-15, 2017

This colloquium, the first in what has been planned to be a triennial series on the intersection between philosophy and theology, sought 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 colloquium was intentionally broad, so as to raise issues for further exploration in the series.

Plenary Session Presenters:

Michael Dodds, OP, Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, Edward Feser, Pasadena City College, Alfred Freddoso, University of Notre Dame, John O’Callaghan, University of Notre Dame, Michał Paluch, OP, Dominican House of Studies, Krakow, Poland, John Searle, University of California at Berkeley, Robert Sokolowski, Catholic University of America, and Linda Zagzebski, University of Oklahoma.
