Lawrence Dewan Symposium - The Study of Philosophy

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Gregory T. Doolan (The Catholic University of America)

September 19-20, 2019 - Dominican University College

Professor Lawrence Dewan, O.P., enriched the areas of Thomistic metaphysics, natural philosophy and ethics, for over forty years, with the outstanding lucidity, depth and comprehensiveness of his research on the many facets of Thomas Aquinas's legacy.  

The specific theme of The Study of Philosophy is intended in part to elicit thinking on the personal contribution of Father Lawrence Dewan to Thomistic philosophical thinking.  This forum invites researchers to present proposals for papers related to the focus of the Symposium or subjects with a subtle visible link to the main theme. Since the event is bilingual, we invite you to submit papers in English or French. Graduate students are also encouraged to submit an abstract.  

Abstracts should be no more than one page (double-spaced) and must include a contact email address or phone number, along with the name of one’s affiliated university.

The symposium will take place at Dominican University College, Ottawa. Abstracts are due by August 2nd and can be sent to René Ardell Fehr,

Registration: $95 CAD | $40 CAD for students
