The Philosophy of Lawrence Dewan: Metaphysics and Ethics.
Professor Lawrence Dewan, O.P., enriched the areas of Thomistic metaphysics, natural philosophy and ethics for over forty years. With the outstanding lucidity, depth and comprehensiveness of his work, Father Dewan’s research has become a point of reference for scholars working on various aspects of the legacy of Thomas Aquinas.
The specific theme of the Metaphysics and Ethics symposium is intended in part to elicit thinking on the personal contribution of Father Lawrence Dewan to both areas of philosophical research. This forum invites researchers to present proposals for papers related to the focus of the Symposium or subjects with a link to the main theme. Since the event is trilingual, we invite you to submit papers in English, French or Spanish. Graduate students are also encouraged to submit an abstract.
Abstracts should be no more than one page (double-spaced) and must include a contact email address or phone number, along with the name of one’s affiliated university. Deadline for submitting an abstract: September 30th, 2015.
Registration fee: $80 (reduced for students)
