Center for the Study of Scottish Philosophy
A Conference on
“SCOTTISH COMMON SENSE PHILOSOPHY and the NATURAL LAW TRADITION in AMERICA”
6th-9th September, 2012
From 1750 to 1850, ethics and education in North America was powerfully influenced by the Scottish philosophical tradition. It was during this period that Princeton Theological Seminary was founded. The CSSP will join in the celebration of its 200th anniversary of its foundation with an international conference whose purpose is twofold: to investigate the academic and religious context in which the Seminary was founded, and explore the continuing relevance and future role of a philosophical tradition grounded in Protestant natural law.
Full details of conference sessions, keynote speakers, call for papers and registration can be found on the conference website
Paper proposals are especially welcome from graduate students, for whom financial assistance is available.
This conference has been made possible through the generous support of Theresa Khuri and the Foundation that is being created of which she will be honorary chairman.
