|Organiser:||School of Arts, Languages and Cultures|
The 2015 Ferguson lecture will discuss various important aspects of the relation of Christian faith and freedom, starting with the understanding of freedom in the Old and the New Testament. The main focus will be on the consequences for a concept of God in modern times which satisfies the condition of human freedom, but is also consonant with Holy Scripture. Professor Grosshans will think about the consequences of thinking about humanity's relationship to God for our general understanding of religion in the present times, in way which is consonant with human freedom. This then will be drawn out into pressing questions of religious freedom in our present societies. It will be the objective of these reflections to work out a few criteria for distinguishing critically the manifold phenomena of religion.
Professor Grosshans teaches at the University of Muenster and is currently president of the European Society for Philosophy of Religion.
