Eighth Annual International Symposium, Beyond Secular Faith

The Gift of Creation: Theological Reflections on Ecology, Metaphysics and Poetry.

On the fifth anniversary of the publication of Laudato Si’, the Institue of Philosophy Edith Stein (Granada, Spain) proposes a profound re-examination of the Christian doctrine of the Gift character of being and creation.

The gift character of being invites us to recover and deepen our study of the unity of the sciences, philosophy and the arts within the fundamental dimension of the human person as created for the Gift (to be received and given).

The hope of this International Symposium is to provide a privileged forum to deepen the theological  and philosophical nexus of this unity and its implications to be illuminated by the light of the gift of Christ.

For seven years our international symposium has facilitated a rich and friendly theological, philosophical and cultural dialogue in freedom, in the unique setting of Granada, a breathtakingly beautiful city that lies at the historic crossroads of modernity and the Christian tradition.
