At Stony Brook University, October 7, 2009:
Between Faith and Reason:
An Interdisciplinary Dialogue Between Jürgen Habermas and Eduardo Mendieta
"This is an informal conversation between Prof. Habermas and Prof. Mendieta that will cover Habermas' most recent work on religion. Prof. Habermas will be asked about theoretical motivations for what some have called his "religious turn." He will be asked about in what ways his approach is a contribution to very concrete European challenges, and whether his reflections have import for the US. He will also be asked about his seminar at Stony Brook on political theology. In particular, he will be asked about his understanding of political theology and what differences he sees between the political theology of Schmitt and Metz. After Mendieta's questions, the floor will be open for questions from the audience."
