RECOVErING CAUSALITY
Purpose
The colloquium, designed especially for Dominican friars interested in the thought of Thomas Aquinas, seeks to gather an international team of scholars, both young and mature, in order to study the key notion of causality from the perspective of multiple disciplines. The dialogue between Thomistic cosmology and contemporary natural science, historical issues concerning the texts of Aquinas or the Thomistic tradition, speculative metaphysical problems, as well as issues related to the humanity of Christ and the sacraments as instrumental causes of grace will be considered. Long papers, which are about 45 minutes in length and followed by extensive discussion, feature professors recognized in their field. Short papers, which are 15 minutes in length and followed by a brief discussion, feature both accomplished Dominican professors and young Dominican scholars of significant promise who are preparing for doctoral studies and/or a full-time teaching apostolate. Papers will be presented either in English or Italian (without translation).
