4th WORLD CONGRESS ON LOGIC AND RELIGION

Sinaia, Romania

September 3-8, 2023

WORKSHOP

Mythos and Logos: Schopenhauer and the relationship between philosophy and religion

 

 

 We are pleased to announce a workshop exploring the significance of philosophy and religion in the works of Arthur Schopenhauer.

 Schopenhauer’s philosophy is recognised for its pessimism and engagement with religious thought, particularly Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity. The aim of the workshop is to investigate how Schopenhauer understands the tension between philosophy and religion in his work and what insights his interpretation can offer to contemporary work in philosophy and religious studies.

 

Keynote Speaker: Professor Matthias Koẞler, President of Schopenhauer-Gesellschaft e. V.

 

 Submissions on a breadth of topics related to Schopenhauer’s philosophy and its relationship with religion are welcome, including but not limited to:

-          Philosophy, religion, and metaphysical consolation

-          Narrative and conceptual truth in Schopenhauer

-          Schopenhauer and apophatic theology

-          Pessimistic and optimistic religions

-          Schopenhauer’s interpretation of the inner kernel of Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam

-          Tragedy and religious allegory

 

Scholars and graduate students in philosophy, religious studies and related areas are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words and a brief CV to olb0487@my.londonmet.ac.uk by June 15th, 2023. The workshop will feature paper presentations followed by a roundtable discussion.

Notification of acceptance will be released by June 30th, 2023.

We anticipate a productive discussion surrounding the relationship between philosophy and religion in Schopenhauer and look forward to receiving your submissions.
