This year the outstanding Czech Christian philosopher
Prof. Stanislav Sousedík (* 1931) will celebrate an important anniversary.
This conference will be hosted in order to honour this very special occasion.
Reflecting the threefold character of Sousedík’s scholarly achievements,
the conference will consist of three sections:
A section devoted to historically oriented papers bearing upon Renaissance and Baroque scholastic thought (relationships to medieval scholasticism, early-modern philosophy or analytical philosophy not excluded).
A section designed for papers attempting to bring late-scholastic ideas up to date using the approach and methods of analytical philosophy; while papers deriving from medieval scholasticism (for example, in the vein of analytical Thomism), or systematic lectures on analytical metaphysics are also welcome.
A section devoted to the apologetic of Christian worldview, or a vindication of the philosophical prerequisites of Christian faith, with a special aim at a critical evaluation of the various ways in which the continental post-scholastic philosophical tradition has adversely affected Christian, especially Catholic, orthodoxy.
