Dominican Colloquium in Berkeley Concludes

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.
