International Conference “Arguing Religion”: Programme, Website, and Online Registration
Arguing Religion: Disagreement, Recognition, and the Reach of Argumentative Debate
6-8 June 2017
Fondazione Bruno Kessler | Aula Grande | Via Santa Croce 77 | 38122 Trento
From 6 to 8 June, the Centre for Religious Studies at Fondazione Bruno Kessler will host the international conference Arguing Religion: Disagreement, Recognition, and the Reach of Argumentative Debate, co-organised with the Berlin/Freiburg based research project “Tiefe Meinungsverschiedenheiten/Deep Disagreements”.
The aim of this conference, which is part of the research activities under the FBK-ISR project “Arguing Religion” (Boris Rähme and Paolo Costa), is to advance our understanding of the epistemology of religious disagreement (RD), to explore the goals and prospects of argumentative debate in responding to RD, and to shed light on the intersections between current philosophical debates in the epistemology of RD and contemporary theories of recognition and toleration.
Among the speakers, there are various internationally renowned scholars in philosophy of religion, theology, religious studies, and philosophy of law.
The programme of the event, as well as the abstracts of the papers that will be presented, are available on the conference website.
Registration for the conference is now open.
