The conference aims at gathering scholars from the fields of philosophy, linguistics, philology, literature, anthropology, and theology to examine the notions of logos and person and their interactions in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions.
Participants will be invited to submit their papers for publication. An Editorial Board will be created for the selection of final contributions, which will be published in a peer-reviewed monograph, also containing an edited version of the discussions at the end of each chapter. The goal is to publish a status questions on the subject.
Topics of interest: From logos to person: The intellectual history of these notions from antiquity to nowadays, particularly (though not exclusively) in the Greek, Hebrew, Arabic and Latin traditions. Languages and personal identity: Learning to speak as a key element in personal development. Self-identity and inter-relations. Memory and verbal expression as a key factor in shaping individual and collective identity. Are words vehicles of thoughts? Does being a person imply being-in-relation? The Word of God. The role of words in the act of creation. Person & Sacred Scripture: Implies divine Revelation a personal God? Prayer as monologue, formula, invocation, or dialogue in the three monotheistic traditions.
