Dumb Ox Theology Forum: Fr. Thomas Joseph White, OP -  Aquinas on Imperfect Happiness: Nature, Grace and the Final End of Man

Friday, April 11, 2014  Event Flyer DSPT Dumb Ox

Both Karl Barth and Henri De Lubac provided powerful, compelling visions of the relationship between the grace of God and human nature. However, their visions are in many respects opposed and incompatible. In his reading of Aristotle, Aquinas focuses on the imperfection of all natural human happiness, and on the natural desire for God. How does his vision provide a potential bridge between the diverse theologies of Barth and De Lubac?

What Has Athens to Do with Jerusalem? Dialogue between Philosophy and Theology in the 21st Century - Dominican Colloquium in Berkeley 

July 16- 20, 2014

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.
