The Dialogue of Cultures

One of my favorite conferences of the year is the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture's annual fall conference.  The year's conference, The Dialogue of Cultures, will take place on the Notre Dame campus from Thusday, Nov. 29 through Saturday, Dec. 1.

The theme is taken from Pope Benedict XVI's 2006 Regensburg address:  "While we rejoice in the new possibilities open to humanity, we also see the dangers arising from these possibilities and we must ask ourselves how we can overcome them. We will succeed in doing so only if reason and faith come together in a new way, if we overcome the self-imposed limitation of reason to the empirically falsifiable, and if we once more disclose its vast horizons. … Only thus do we become capable of that genuine dialogue of cultures and religions so urgently needed today.

Check out the rich fare in the Conference Schedule.
