A SYMPOSIUM AND BOOK LAUNCH

A one-day Symposium to celebrate the Jesuit educational ‘genius’ and intellectual tradition, and the launch of Philosophy and Theology in the Jesuit Tradition: ‘The Eye of Love.’  (Bloomsbury, 2017)

Drawing on the best of Renaissance humanist values, Jesuits have sought to order humanist learning ‘for the greater glory of God’. Central to the Jesuit project is the conviction that theology and philosophy- the quest for divine truth, and the love of human wisdom- can and should be oriented towards one another, in a way that is mutually enriching and empowering.

The scholars represented in this volume are associated with Heythrop College, a Jesuit academic foundation which dates its original foundation to 1614, though since 1970 it has found a home as ‘the specialist college of theology and philosophy in the University of London’.

This volume offers contributions to a ‘new renaissance’: on topics such as faith and spirituality, science and reason, secularism, naturalism, humanism and Jesuit education. Its title comes from the Jesuit mission statement: ‘Ours is a service of faith and of the radical implications of faith in a world where it is becoming easier to settle for something less than faith and less than justice. We recognize, along with many of our contemporaries, that without faith, without the eye of love, the human world seems too evil for God to be good, for a good God to exist’.
