Symposium on Love in World ReligionsAdd New  Links 

On August 10th, from 1-3pm ET, the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University will be pleased to host a webinar on the theme of love in Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Our distinguished panelists will explore how their respective traditions construe the nature and significance of love for others and for God or the transcendent.  

Symposium Panelists include:

  • Karma Lekshe Tsomo, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies, University of San Diego;
  • Rita D. Sherma, PhD, Director & Associate Professor, The Mira & Ajay Shingal Center for Dharma Studies & The Graduate Theological Union;
  • Megan Adamson Sijapati, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies, Gettysburg College;
  • Yudit Kornberg Greenberg, Ph.D., George D. and Harriet W. Cornell Endowed Chair of Religion at Rollins College & Director of the Jewish Studies Program.

Q&A to follow.

As our project is grounded in the writings of the Christian theologian Aquinas on the contributory and unitive aspects of love, in this workshop we are especially interested in exploring non-Christian perspectives on love.
