Naturalism, (A)theism, Theology

29-30 June, 2020

InnsbruckUniversity of Innsbruck

The topic of the conference in Innsbruck shall discuss the following issues: Does naturalism imply atheism? Does naturalism lead to new, non-theistic concepts of the divine? What are possible forms of spirituality based upon a naturalistic conception of reality? Is there a middle ground between naturalism and traditional theism? Can theology contribute to a better understanding of nature? Are there models for understanding God’s presence in nature? Can we understand the concept of the divine as implicated in our understanding of nature? Is theology primarily a theoretical science, concerned with hypothesis about the cosmos, or a practical science, concerned with a life-changing existential quest?
