The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies invites philosophers and theologians from the New England area to discuss and debate issues in metaphysics at the 2015 Metaphysics Colloquium on Wednesday and Thursday, June 10-11, 2015.
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 colloquium topic is Catholicism, Beauty, and the Arts and will have three speakers: Professor Johann Moser, Emeritus Professor of English, Saint Anselm College; Professor Thomas Larson, Professor of Philosophy at Saint Anselm College, and Ms. Margaret Dimock, Assistant Curator, Chapel Art Center of Saint Anselm College.
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.
