Tue, 2013-10-29 13:30 - 14:30
Sherbrooke 688 : rm 325, 688 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 3R1

Prof. Ferraris will present his work on Postmodernism and Realism this tuesday

The talk will examine four theses:

The first (relativism) is a critique of post-modern assumption that reality as a whole is socially constructed, this thesis has given a distorted view of the media as omnipotent manufacturers of reality;

The second (new realism) is the thesis that a fundamental layer of reality exists independently of media, but also our minds;

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.
