The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies invites philosophers and theologians from the New England area to discuss and debate issues in metaphysics at the 2013 Metaphysics Colloquium on Wednesday and Thursday, June 5-6, 2013.
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 Saint Anselm Journal offers presentations given at previous colloquia.
