Annual Conference of the Irish Philosophical Society: John Henry Newman and Philosophy
University College Dublin, 6th and 7th November 2015

This conference will explore the connections between John Henry Newman (1801-1890) and philosophy. Newman wrote on faith and reason, on the development of ideas, liberal knowledge, conscience, belief, and on being a loyal citizen. Can he be read as a philosopher? How was he influenced by philosophy? What are his contributions to philosophical debates? What was his impact on the philosophers of his day and beyond? How relevant is he today?

Keynote address
Pascal Engel (University of Geneva)
