Topic areas

Details

Religion exists only in specific traditions. How similar and how different are the logical concepts present in Jewish and Christian traditions? What are the specific issues in the two traditions that have logical aspects? And how similar or how divergent are they? Does rationality mean the same in Judaism and Christianity? Is it possible to detect logical elements of Christian-Jewish polemics? And of cooperation and dialogue of the two traditions? In addition, because of the location of the conference, it would be good to relate these questions to Hinduism and other Asian traditions. Do they provide new insights?

These problems and related ones will be addressed during the workshop "Judaism, Christianity and Logic", which will be part of 3rd World Congress on Logic and Religion.

We invite submissions of contributed papers on topics including but not restricted to:

  •     Logic in Christian theological discourse
  •     Logic in Jewish theological discourse
  •     Logical Problem of Trinity
  •     Talmudic logic 
  •     Logical aspects common to Christian and Jewish discourses
  •     Logical aspects opposing Christian and Jewish discourses
  •     The concept of rationality in Jewish and Christian traditions
  •     Jewish-Christian polemics and logic
  •     Logic and Jewish-Christian dialogue

Note on the COVID-19 Crisis

The conference world is severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The organizing and scientific committees of the 3rd Congress of World on Logic and Religion are deeply concerned with the crisis. As our conference is still a few months ahead (November 8-12) and we still cannot say with confidence how the situation will be in two or three months, we cannot yet say anything about a possible postponement of our congress. Ideally, of course, we should keep the original date. However, the physical and psychological health of our speakers and attendees is a priority. As soon as we have a definitive position on this issue we will let everyone know.
