After the initial 2023 symposium on philosophising in Mary in general, the 2024 edition will focus on one particular area where philosophising in Mary might bear fruit: political philosophy. The overall question is whether Mary can be a fruitful model or source of inspiration to develop a philosophical concept of the state, or of the nature of the political in general, that is neither atheist nor theocratic.   For more information:   The preliminary list of speakers includes Adrian Vermeule (Harvard), Sarah Jane Boss (Centre for Marian Studies), Pater Edmund Waldstein OCist. (Heiligenkreuz), Rocco Buttiglione (St. Pius V), Fr. Dirk Hanssens OSB (Keizersberg).   Deadline for abstract submission: June 30th, 2024. Notification of acceptance: July 15th, 2024.   This 2024 edition is organised by Michaël Bauwens (University of Antwerp) and Jared Schumacher (University of Mary).
