Reading Group

The Center hosts a weekly reading group to discuss recent work in the philosophy of religion. Visitors to the reading group have included Bryan Frances (Fordham), Steve Wykstra (Calvin), William Lane Craig (Talbot), and Eleonore Stump (St. Louis University). Topics covered in recent readings have included the problem of evil, disagreement, skeptical theism, and the relationship between theism and modality. The group meets this semester (Spring 2018) on Thursdays from 1:00-2:30pm in the large seminar room at the Rutgers philosophy department. If you are interested in participating, please contact either Dean Zimmerman or this year's reading group coordinator, Chris Hauser (This email address is being protected from spambots.
