Summer Philosophy Conference: Aquinas on God
January 8, 2014
In participation with the Catholic and Dominican Institute of Mount Saint Mary College and the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, the Thomistic Institute is hosting its fourth annual summer philosophy conference at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY, on the subject Aquinas on God. The conference aims to address the philosophical questions that arise from claims about God; namely, is it even possible to speak of God philosophically? What about the nature of creation, providence, and ethics? The various presenters at the conference will seek to answer these questions using tools from the Thomistic tradition, applying them to issues both historical and thematic. Eight featured speakers will give major papers at the conference, including James Brent, O.P., Michael Dodds, O.P., and Thomas Joseph White, O.P., as well as William Carroll of Oxford University and Edward Feser of Pasadena College, among others. A complete list of featured speakers, with requisite texts, can be found at the conference’s website here. The conference extends from June 5 to June 8, 2014, in Newburgh, NY. Graduate students in philosophy, theology, and related disciplines are invited to attend. Registration begins on January 15, and space is limited. Full registration, cost, and housing information is available in the conference’s brochure. Graduate students interested in a scholarship to defray the costs of attending should send a request and CV to Ms. Jeanne Conboy at Jeanne.Conboy@msmc.edu. A flier for the event can be found here.
