Dominican Colloquia in Berkeley: Philosophers & Theologians in Conversation

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

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.
