This note is to announce a symposium dedicated to the recent work of J.L. Schellenberg, in particular his trilogy with Cornel U press – Prolegomena to a Philosophy of Religion (2005), Wisdom to Doubt: A Justification of Religious Skepticism (2007), The Will to Imagine: A Justification of Skeptical Religion (2009)
The one-day symposium will take place in Montreal, at Concordia University, Sunday, May 30th, 2010 — and is part of the Canadian Philosophical Association’s annual meeting. The main focus of the event will be over Schellenberg’s provocative claim that (i) traditional religious outlooks, including theism, are no longer tenable, but that (ii) religion may well have a very interesting future that human beings, at this stage in their evolutionary development, can only begin to grasp.
Participants Include:
J.L Schellenberg (Mount St Vincent)
Paul Draper (Purdue University)
Stephen Wykstra (Calvin College)
J.J Macintosh (University of Calgary)
