The Nature of God: Personal and a-personal concepts of the divine

Summer School: July 26 – August 4, 2018 (Call for participants)

Conference: August 6, 2014 – August 8, 2018 (Call for speakers)

In recent decades, an increasing number of philosophers in the analytic tradition have begun to produce exciting philosophical work on topics relating directly to systematic theology.

The Analytic Theology Project is a multinational three-year endeavour that contributes to this development in a creative way.  The project funds systematic research promoting interdisciplinary cooperation between analytic philosophers and theologians.  It thus explores the intersection of both fields and seeks to establish links between the traditions of classical European theology and analytic thinking.  Against this background the project is organizing a summer school (with a call for papers) and an international conference on The Nature of God.  The language of both events is English.

These events will investigate the theoretical commitments of views according to which God is personal, and those according to which God is a-personal, as well as considering the implications of this for spirituality and religious practice.
