This page is sponsored by the Outreach to Christian Philosophers Committee of the Society of Christian Philosophers. The purpose of this page is to promote the work of the Committee--namely, to:

 i) to initiate and develop contacts with individuals and associations who are engaged philosophical research and study similar to or consistent with that of the Society of Christian Philosophers but who, for social or political reasons or on account of geographical location, have not been able to do enter into a closer relationship with the SCP.

 ii) to serve as a conduit of information about meetings, conferences and other matters of common interest occurring outside of North America that would be of interest to Christian philosophers both in North America and abroad

 iii) to help, when asked, and as far as possible, in organizing and sponsoring lectures and educational exchanges, particularly in those regions where there is a renewed interest, or a possibility to share, in the work of the Society of Christian Philosophers

 iv) to help, when asked and as far as possible, in the publicity and organisation of conferences outside of North America that are on themes consistent with the work of the Society of Christian Philosophers and, especially, with world congresses of christian philosophers

 v) to encourage the participation of the Society of Christian Philosophers and its members in conferences outside of North America

Philosophy of religion, as practised in English-speaking countries, faces challenges from the philosophical cultures of other countries; from feminist thought; and from a revival of interest in the continental European traditions of philosophy.  This conference will focus on the latter of these three, drawing on the other two in relation to it.
Continental philosophy, the heritage of Kant, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche and Freud, has developed through a critical engagement with religion.  Although this engagement has defined its tradition, Continental philosophy of religion has not received sufficient institutional focus and prominence.  In recent years, various strands of Continental philosophy have made a more positive evaluation of religion, perhaps by deconstructing the distinction between the secular and the sacred.  Such strands re-open the site of religion for critical interrogation.
The task of this conference is to develop some cohesion to the field of the Continental philosophy of religion.

"Travel, Communication and Geography in Late Antiquity"

The Society for Late Antiquity announces the Fourth Shifting Frontiers in Late Antiquity Conference,"Travel, Communication and Geography in Late Antiquity", to be held at the Downtown Center of San Francisco State University, San Francisco, 8-11 March 2001.

We welcome 20-minute presentations on all kinds of travel (religious pilgrimages; travel for official, commercial, or military purposes; travel for pleasure; journeys of the soul), on various kinds of communication (inter-religious or inter-cultural communication; written, spoken, or visual communication; pedagogy; linguistic change; communication between the human and the divine), and on any aspect of geography and especially its interrelationship with travel and communication (e.g., land vs. sea vs. river travel or communication; travel and communication between highland and lowland; the psychology of distance, geology, and/or geography; geography of the heavenly city).  Submissions are encouraged from across a wide variety of disciplines and methodological perspectives, including, but not retricted to, those of archaeology, communication studies, economics, geography and geology, history, language and literature, militaria, psychology, religious studies.  We would particularly welcome presentatoins which 'journey' across 'disciplinary frontiers' (e.g., case studies for interdisciplinary research on the topics above) or presentations which discuss--again within the context of the conference theme--disciplinary methodology and theory (i.e., research paradigms, collection and analysis of data, how assumptions affect research, models
of human behavior, how knowledge about life in Late Antiquity is created). Finally, presenters should not feel confined to discuss only travel or communication or geography; on the contrary, they should try to see these topics as interdependent.  It is our intention to make every effort to seek a publisher for the conference proceedings.

Please direct all inquiries concerning the program, and send abstracts of not more than 500 words via e-mail, FAX, or post, to Prof. Linda Ellis, Department of Classics, San Francisco State University 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132-4162 (FAX: 415-338-1775; e-mail: Abstracts are due 1 October 2000.

Budhi: a journal of ideas and culture

The South Pacific Journal of Philosophy and Culture
The South Pacific Journal of Philosophy and Culture aims at allowing a philosophical perspective on recent trends in religion, culture, and society that benefits from an outlook not available to those who are immersed within these events or rooted in a 'first world' viewpoint. Articles appearing in the journal are not restricted to this perspective, and may bear on topics and themes in religion, philosophy and culture in general.  Political, historical, religious and anthropological studies which raise philosophical issues, though not necessarily offer technical discussion, will find a place.
  Articles that deal with issues relevant to the indigenous people of the South Pacific region, to the third world, or to aboriginal peoples in general (e.g., interpretations of first world educational and intellectual trends focusing upon post modernism, hermeneutics, feminism, feminist studies, gender politics, political correctness and recent preference for communitarian rather than liberal discourse) are particularly invited.
