Keynote Address by Professor Stanley Hauerwas
Tuesday, 3 July 2018
Professor Stanley Hauerwas is the Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, Duke University Divinity School, USA. He is one of the world's leading theologians and was named "America's Best Theologian" by Time magazine in 2001.
In the context of the 2018 International Society for MacIntyrean Enquiry conference, Professor Hauerwas will deliver a keynote address entitled:
This paper traces MacIntyre's life-long engagement with Christianity and explores his contention that he became and remains a Christian on philosophical grounds, while at the same time showing his account of philosophy and theology is more complex than some of his claims about the role of philosophy. The address will suggest that MacIntyre's position had and continues to have constructive suggestions about the role of the philosopher in the church and in the world.
