Providence and Theist Personalism
International Research Workshop

16 April 2020


This international workshop, part of the Human and Divine Providence project, seeks to offer a space to reconsider the metaphysical doctrine of divine providence under the light of the divine attribute of personhood, within the framework of contemporary analytic philosophy of religion.

The event, which will be completely in English, will include the participation of Prof. Georg Gasser, from the University of Innsbruck (Austria)  and scholars from the Philosophy Institute at Austral, opening an opportunity for a Latin American scholar to present their research.
