Finding Common Ground Between Athens and Jerusalem
This issue of Common Ground Journal consists of ideas that were in response to the regional conference of the Society of Christian Philosophy that joined with the Society of Continental Philosophy and Theology to ask the question, “What is Christian Philosophy?” One paper at the conference, written by J. Aaron Simmons, also one of the contributors to this issue, made a convincing plea that Christian philosophers should not allow themselves to define philosophy of religion for everyone else. Subsequently the scope of this issue includes contributors from the world’s three major monotheisms: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. While there are certainly many other voices that could be heard, placing these three together in conversation on the philosophy of religion seems apropos to the present moment, given so many events in the news media where these three religions appear in conflict.In the Next Issue
A special issue is scheduled for Spring 2016 in honor of a member of the academic community. More details will be released later in the fall of 2015.
