4th WORLD CONGRESS ON LOGIC AND RELIGION

Sinaia, Romania

September 3-8, 2023

WORKSHOP

Argumentation in World Religious Traditions, including Legal Traditions

Organiser: Agnieszka Rostalska, Ghent University

Keynote Speaker: Douglas L. Berger, Leiden University

 

Formalized approaches to philosophical argumentation, conducted in specific genres of debate, were developed in most World Religious Traditions, and are not at all exclusively distinctive of “Western” philosophical disputation.

This workshop, part of the 4th World Congress on Logic and Religion, explores cross-cultural perspectives on argumentation, specifically, those that governed how different traditions engaged in philosophical debates.

Suggested topics include - but are not limited to - the following:

The participants will inquire into how the relations between logic and religion are supported by rational inquiry. They will scrupulously examine a wide range of arguments postulated by philosophers and logicians.

Papers with comparative and/or cross-cultural components are particularly welcome.
