The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies invites philosophers and theologians from the New England area to discuss and debate issues in metaphysics at the 2014 Metaphysics Colloquium on Wednesday and Thursday, June 11-12, 2014.
The colloquium was inspired by Pope John Paul II who in his encyclical letter Fides et Ratio spoke of the need for continuing philosophical speculation in order to come to an understanding of the Catholic faith. Participants ground their work in ecclesiastical and scholarly insights and principles.
The main speaker is Nicholas Healy, Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Culture at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute, The Catholic University of America. The topic is Han Urs von Balthasar's theology of the Eucharist.
The Saint Anselm Journal offers presentations given at previous colloquia.
Overnight accomodations are available on campus, and there is no fee for the Colloquium. Please register online.
