Philosophy and Religion Conference to Take Place Nov. 5

Students from Truman and several other universities will present on a wide range of topics at the 27th Philosophy and Religion Conference at 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 5 in Violette Hall 1010.

The keynote speaker will be this year’s Henry Smits Lecture by Kenneth Boyce, assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Missouri-Columbia, presenting “Can Traditional Theists be Platonists?” at 12:30 p.m. The full schedule of presentations will be available at the conference’s webpage. This event is sponsored by the Department of Philosophy and Religion.

The annual conference is an opportunity for students from across the nation to share the results of their research in philosophy and religious studies. Undergraduate and graduate students with a variety of relevant interests submit papers. By taking the challenge of submitting their original work to the conference, students have the chance to share their thoughts with other interested scholars from different parts of the country and with different areas of expertise.
