Bridging the Secular Divide: Religion and Canadian Public Discourse

Mon, 2013-05-27 (All day) - Tue, 2013-05-28 (All day)
Price: $70-$140

It was once said that as societies develop, religion disappears. This myth has now been debunked, as the persistence of modern religious belief attests; however, it remains unresolved how religion should enter into our secular spaces of public discourse within the media, civil society and government. In a country that has defined itself by values of pluralism and religious freedom, the exclusion of religion from all public discourse would be simplistic and inconsistent with our heritage.

Has Philosophy of Religion a Future?

Thu, 2013-04-25 (All day)
Birks Building : Room 111, 3520 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2A7

The symposium aims to address the emerging new faces of philosophy of religion that expand on the wider cultural issues of theorizing religion today.  Topics to be addressed range from how ideology critique has come to change the face of studying religion academically and whether theology and religious studies can or should, in the context of post-phenomenological debates, co-exist in the university, to whether traditional philosophy of religion, as distinct from philosophical theology and phenomenology of religion, is more properly philosophy of religious studies.
