Conference: Faith in Reason and Reason in Faith
 
 
Date: 23-26 October 2008 
 

A Conference to be held in Hong Kong by The School of Modern Languages and Cultures, University of Hong Kong in conjunction with Australasian Theological Forum (ATF Press)

Philosophical Theology Series
FAITH IN REASON AND REASON IN FAITH: PHILOSOPHICAL THEOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATIONS FROM THE 18TH TO 20TH CENTURIES

October 23-26, 2008

‘Faith in Reason and Reason in Faith: Philosophical Theological Transformations from the 18th to 20th Centuries’ is the third conference in a series in the 'Philosophical Theology Series', the proceedings of which are to be published by ATF (Australasian Theological Forum). The preceding conferences and volumes in the series are Messianism, Apocalypse, and Redemption: 20th Century German Thought (ATF 2004), Augustine: His Relevance and Legacy (ATF forthcoming 2009).

Conferences held in the ‘Philosophical Theology Series’ are small conferences by invitation only involving philosophers, theologians and members of other academic disciplines whose work interfaces with philosophy and theology. The purpose of the conference is to enable plenty of discussion and an opportunity for paper presenters to receive valuable feedback from other scholars in the field to assist in the final published version of the paper. Conference participants are selected on the basis of contributions which are not only of peer review quality – all papers are peer reviewed by ATF – but contribute to the volume having a coherence which ensures a valuable scholarly contribution to the topic of the volume. Each paper giver has approximately 1 hour 15 minutes for presentation and discussion. Because the success of the conference lies in the creation of a common spirit for the project at hand, all paper givers are required to attend all sessions.

The School of Modern Languages and Cultures is also committed to producing Chinese language translations of the volumes with additional Chinese contributions as part of its contribution to East/West dialogue.
