What is religion’s place in the academy today?
Are religious perspectives viable in a pluralistic academic setting?
In his lucid and penetrating essay Religion in the University,” prominent philosopher of religion Nicholas Wolterstorff draws on authors ranging from Max Weber and John Locke to Ludwig Wittgenstein and Charles Taylor to argue that religious orientations and voices do have a home in modern academic discussion. He also offers a sketch of what that home should look like.
This author-meets-critics panel discussion is the inaugural event for Princeton’s new Project in Philosophy and Religion (https://pppr.princeton.edu).
