Lunch Round Table: D.C. Schindler on "Freedom from Reality: The Diabolical Character of Modern Liberty"

Conference on Medicine & Religion

Location: St. Louis, Missouri

Cmr Text Logo

The Center for Ethics and Culture is a co-sponsor of the annual Conference on Medicine & Religion. The 2018 conference is entitled, "Examining the Foundations of Medicine and Religion."​

Over the past century, there have been repeated calls for medicine to incorporate religion or “spirituality”. Some have called for clinicians and clergy to work together in order to care for patients holistically. Others have looked to religious traditions for content to help clinicians practice ethically. Still others have looked to religious communities and spiritual practices to help patients cope with and find meaning in their suffering. Each of these highlights a widespread sense that modern medicine alone cannot help people make sense of and respond well to disability, illness, and suffering.

8th Annual Philosophy Workshop: Aquinas on Divine Attributes

Location: Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh NY

Aquinas on Divine Attributes

The Center for Ethics and Culture, in concert with the Catholic and Dominican Institute at Mount Saint Mary College and the Thomistic Institute at the Dominican House of Studies, is again co-sponsoring the 8th Annual Philosophy Workshop.

Specific divine attributes will be explored as well as the broader issues of the possibility of knowledge of God in this life and divine naming.…
