What’s New about the New Atheism? The Enduring Relevance of Russian Philosophy
Northwestern University, Evanston, April 21–23, 2023
The NU RPRT Research Initiative fosters scholarship about the global relevance of Russian philosophy and religious thought. Our inaugural conference will take place at Northwestern University in April 2023. It will focus attention on how Russian writers—artists, philosophers, and religious thinkers—have reflected on the fate of the transcendent in modernity. We invite papers exploring any aspect of this topic, including the role of faith and reason in human self-understanding, in social philosophy, and in the search for an integral worldview. Conference participants should aim to produce papers suitable (in their final form) for publication in Northwestern University Studies in Russian Philosophy and Religious Thought, an online platform that will exist in two forms, an annual journal and a “research series” for works longer than journal articles.
