Theology and Continental Philosophy Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit seeks to further discussions at the intersection of post-Kantian philosophy in its various permutations with historical and contemporary theological reflection. While we remain centered on continental European thought on the philosophical side, the term “theology” in our parlance extends to critical reflection on a range of religions worldwide. Contact the Program Unit Chairs if you seek further information on the Unit’s activities.

Call for Papers: 

We seek panel or paper sessions addressing this year's theme, "Religion and the Most Vulnerable," particularly papers that provide perspectives on how Continental philosophers have responded in times of political upheaval. In addition, we welcome proposals that critically interrogate contemporary philosophical commentary on Islam and/or forge constructive alternatives, particularly in conversation with Islamic mysticism; bring Continental and Caribbean thought into dialogue; or reflect on Freud's Mourning and Melancholia on the centenary of its publication. As always, we invite proposals on other topics of particular interest to the membership.
