Symposium Thomisticum V

January 29, 2020

Symposium Thomisticum V will take place in Cracow, 4 – 6 June 2020. Details are available at: http://www.symposiumthomisticum.com.

The theme of the Symposium is Aquinas on Action, with action understood in the broadest possible sense, from the divine act of creation to criminal activity and anything between. Papers may be in ethics, psychology, legal philosophy, theology, aesthetics, metaphysics or epistemology. They may be historical, exegetic or speculative. 

Invited speakers include John Cottingham, Kevin Flannery SJ, Jennifer Frey, Lloyd Gerson, Harm Goris, John Haldane, Joshua Hochschild, Edward Houser, Reinhard Huetter, Patrick Masterson, Turner Nevitt, Siobhan Nash-Marshall, John O’Callaghan, Paul O’Grady, Fran O’Rourke, Thomas Osborne, Michael Sherwin OP, Mary Catherine Sommers, Richard Taylor, Jörgen Vijgen, Candace Vogler, Thomas Joseph White OP.

Papers are invited for parallel supplementary sessions on the afternoon of Saturday 6 June 2020.

While topics on any aspect of Aquinas are welcome, priority will be given to those relating to action. To avoid overlap, initial titles may be sent at the earliest to Fran O’Rourke, Emeritus Professor, School of Philosophy, University College Dublin (orourke@ucd.ie).

The deadline for abstracts is 31 January and for completed papers 1 May 2020.

Papers will be circulated in advance; summaries will be presented at the symposium: papers will be discussed rather than read.

The registration fee is €200 to include refreshments and three five-star dinners.

Accommodation: Participants are responsible for their own accommodation. The conference hotel is the four-star Kossak Hotel. A number of rooms have been block-booked at the reduced rate of 120 euro. For reservation code please email orourke@ucd.ie.

All inquiries to Fran O’Rourke, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, University College Dublin (orourke@ucd.ie).
