Confronting Secularism

Date: 11-12 May 2011 Time: 10.00-17.00 pm

Venue: Bowland North SR20

Twentieth-century attempts to administer societies along secular lines have masked a question that goes to the heart of authority, society and community: what is it which now binds Western societies together? This workshop explores these questions along three related lines: the political, the philosophical, and the religious, asking what resources these three approaches offer to those seeking to restore legitimacy to our societies and to investigate the bases of community.

Speakers include

Arthur Bradley (Lancaster) Stephen Bullivant (St Mary's College)

Brian Garvey (Lancaster) Tom Grimwood (Lancaster)

Patrice Haynes (Liverpool Hope)

Gavin Hyman (Lancaster) Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad (Lancaster)

David M Seymour (Lancaster) Graham M Smith (Lancaster)

Tom Wolstenholme (Lancaster)Evert van der Zweerde (Radboud, Nijmegen)
