ACPA Satellite Session

At the fall 2011 meeting of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, the Institute for Saint Anselm Studies sponsored a satellite session on "Philosophical Implications of Anselm's Prayers and Meditations." The Saint Anselm Journal is pleased to publish two papers from that session: Katherin Rogers, "Anselm on Self-reflection in Theory and Practice," and Eileen C. Sweeney, "Anselmian Meditation: Imagination, Aporia, and Argument."

Metaphysics Colloquium

The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies sponsored the 2012 Metaphysics Colloquium at Saint Anselm College, June 6-7, 2012. The yearly Metaphysics Colloquium takes its inspiration from Pope John Paul II who in Fides et Ratio spoke of the need for continuing philosophical and theological speculation to come to an understanding of the Catholic faith.

The principal speaker at the colloquium was R. E. Houser, Center for Thomistic Studies, University of St. Thomas, Houston, and the respondents were Cyrus P. Olsen III, University of Scranton, and Kevin M. Staley, Saint Anselm College. The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies is pleased to publish the three papers from the colloquium: R. E. Houser, "Avicenna and Aquinas: Essence, Existence, and the Esse of Christ," Cyrus P. Olsen III, "Ontology, Thomism, and the Esse of Christ: A Theological Response to R. E. Houser," and Kevin M. Staley, "Avicenna, Aquinas and the Real Distinction: In Defense of Mere Possibilities or Why Existence Matters."

Selected Article

The Institute is also pleased to publish one article from those submitted to The Saint Anselm Journal: Robert Francis Allen, "Freedom and Reason: An Anselmian Critique of Susan Wolf's Compatibilism."
