Each year the MA Philosophy Program sponsors a scholarly conference on Christian philosophy. Philosophers and scholars from around the world meet for several days to discuss the work of an important Catholic philosopher or an important philosophical topic or school in the Catholic philosophical tradition. Whenever possible, graduate courses are offered in conjunction with the conferences to augment the courses and sometimes to allow graduate student participation in the conference.Must Morality Be Grounded in God?This ancient question has arisen anew in the contemporary atheism debate. Some say that morality can hold its ground on a naturalistic basis and without any transcendent foundation. On the other side are those who claim that morality is not intelligible without being placed in some theistic framework. Even Christian philosophers do not always agree among themselves about how moral knowledge is grounded in religious knowledge, nor even about how morality itself is grounded in God. The conference aims at sorting out these issues.Call for AbstractsThose wishing to present a paper (25 minutes reading time) should submit a 300-word abstract by February 25, 2013 to Dr. John Crosby at JCrosby@franciscan.edu . Papers on any aspect of the issue will be considered, including papers defending a naturalistic account of morality. Graduate students are welcome to submit proposals. The registration fee will be remitted for those whose papers are chosen for presentation. Graduate Philosophy Website
