This event is part of The Dialogue between Faith and Culture: A Series of Conferences and Symposia in Honor of the Inauguration of the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, O.S.A. as Villanova University’s thirty-second President.  

October 26, 27, 28, 2006

Modern political thought emerged out of the crucible of European religious conflict and issued in a new, religiously neutral, notion of the secular. Postmodern political thought is in some cases the worry, in other cases the hope that the modern notion of the secular has become unworkable and perhaps wholly anachronistic. As the space for politics becomes increasingly contested in religiously plural civic communities, old questions about the division of labor between philosophical, religious, and political pursuits return with a new urgency.
Our nine speakers have been invited to help us think through the fraught question of politics in our uncomfortably postmodern times.
