"Food for Thought" Lecture, February 12: "Felix Culpa!" by Hud Hudson, Professor of Philosophy at Western Washington University

The aim of our Food for Thought lecture series is to encourage undergraduate students to think about and discuss important issues related to the Philosophy of Religion.  Undergraduate students enjoy a talk given by an outside speaker, discussion led by graduate students at their tables, question and answer with the speaker, and a free catered meal. The events are held at Notre Dame.

Our next Food for Thought lecture is scheduled for February 12. Hud Hudson will deliver a lecture entitled "Felix Culpa!". See our Food for Thought webpage for further details. If you are interested in attending, please reserve a seat by contacting Tobias Flattery at tflatter@nd.edu or by visiting the Facebook event page.

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 January 30 from 10:00am - 11:30am in 220 Malloy Hall. The group will discuss "Agentive Phenomenology and Responsibility Agnosticism" by Leigh Vicens.

See our calendar for the full schedule.

The Journal of Analytic Theology


JAT Logo 2

We are excited to announce the second 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.
