A colloquium sponsored by the Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology in Berkeley, on the intersection between philosophy and theology has just concluded. Each main presenter was paired with a respondent in theology. Main talks by Msgr. Robert Sokolowski, Linda Zagzebski, Edward Feser, Fr. Michael Dodds, John Searle, Fr. Michał Paluch, Allred Freddoso, and John O’Callaghan received responses from Fr. Richard Schenk, Fr. Bernhard Blankenhorn, Fr. Simon Gaine, Steven Long, Fr. Michael Dodds, Matthew Levering, Fr. Thomas Joseph White, and Fr. Michael Sherwin, respectively. Over fifty breakout-session papers were also delivered. The main papers and responses, and a selection from the breakout papers, are to appear later in Nova et Vetera. The organizers consider this colloquium to be the first of an ongoing series, to be held every three years.
In from Philipp Rosemann at the University of Dallas is the following news:
Are you aware of the fact that the University of Dallas now publishes its annual Aquinas Lecture, in a series of small books produced by St. Augustine's Press? For more info, have a look here.
The first lecture published is that of a scholar well-known to our visitors: John F. Boyle, who lectured on "Master Thomas Aquinas and the Fullness of Life." The books are published by St. Augustine's Press.
In from Alexis Bugnolo is news that an English translation of Bonaventure's Scriptum on Book 1 of Peter Lombard's Sentences will appear in November of this year. The translation uses the critical edition from Quaracchi, and includes all the scholia and notes! Neat.
