It has been a major question in traditional theological thinking how the Divine Attributes are to be understood. Recent debates in analytical philosophy have allowed new approaches that, however, are often not linked to those traditional debates. The project « Building bridges between traditional thought and analytical philosophy – Rethinking Divine Attributes in Islam and Christianity » aims at bringing the traditional theological discussions in touch with the modern analytical debate. Questions about the attributes of Omnipotence and Omniscience, Justice and Mercy, Simplicity and Divine Action will be explored in three consecutive Summer Schools. The second one, « Mercy and Justice », will take place in Paderborn in August 2020.
This Summer School is part of the project “Building bridges between traditional thought and analytical philosophy – Rethinking Divine Attributes in Islam and Christianity” which is funded by the Templeton Foundation
The application is open for International BA/MA-students and PhD students until the end of March, for students in Germany until the end of April 2020.
