We discuss the work-in-progress of the Center's Fellows, local faculty, and occasional outside visitors. Papers are not presented during the discussion group meeting; rather, we read the papers in advance and the meetings are devoted entirely to Q&A. 

The next meeting is scheduled for March 23, 2018. The group will discuss "From Theism to Idealism to Monism: A Leibnizian Road Not Taken" by Samuel Newlands.

See our calendar for the full schedule.

We are excited to announce the fifth volume of the Journal of Analytic Theology, a new, open access, international joint publication of the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame and Baylor University. It explores theological and meta-theological topics in a manner that prizes terminological clarity and argumentative rigor, including historical studies that seek to elucidate conceptual challenges or explore strategies for addressing them.
