Conference Description:

The Arts and Humanities Research Division of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER), will hold A Panel on the Relationship of Philosophy and Theology in Modern Thought, 22-25 May 2017, Athens, Greece as part of the 2nd Annual International Symposium on Religion & Theology.

This panel focuses on the relationship of philosophy and theology, both historically and ontologically, and thus on the relationship of the secular and the religious and of reason and faith in modern thought. Central to the issues to be examined in this panel are the ideas of the divine and the human that are found in both ancient Greek thought and the Bible, together with its Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions of thought.
