The preliminary conference schedule is now online for the 2014 annual meeting of the American Catholic Philosophical Association. The conference will meet in Washington, D.C., hosted by The Catholic University of America, with the theme “Dispositions, Habits, and Virtues”. Registration information is here. Plenary speakers are Susan Haack, Timothy B. Noone, Daniel Dahlstrom, Marilyn McCord Adams, and the Aquinas Medalist is John Rist. For the second year, the conference has expanded its offerings, and there many satellite sessions on a variety of topics.
Registration is now open for "What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?", a colloquium concerning the intersection between philosophy and theology, July 16-20, 2014, in Berkeley, California. Hosted by The Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, the event will gather scholars from academia and from the Dominican Order throughout the world, putting Thomism and other traditions into dialogue with more recent schools of thought. Plenary session presenters include Fr. Michael Dodds, OP, Edward Feser, Alfred Freddoso, John O’Callaghan, Fr. Michał Paluch, OP, John Searle, Msgr. Robert Sokolowski, and Linda Zagzebski. This is to be the first of a triennial series (Dominican Colloquia in Berkeley). Details, including the call for papers (deadline, Feb. 7) and registration page, may be found at www.dspt.edu/conversation2014.
I received the final conference program from Prof. Dr. Henk Schoot, director of the Thomas Instituut in Utrecht (The Netherlands) (see our earlier post here). The Institute organizes its fourth international conference on the theological virtues in Aquinas from 11-14 December 2013.
Speakers include Eleonore Stump, Michael Sherwin O.P. and John O'Callaghan and many other contributors from North America.
