Call For Papers

The Medieval Tradition of Natural Law at the 54th International Congress on Medieval Studies (May 2019 @ Western Michigan University) will focus on the theme of war and peace. What constitutes a just war; a question that has occupied philosophers for many centuries and is still important today. In a recent book by Gregory Reichberg, Thomas Aquinas on War and Peace, he sets out to explore the question, and the answers, that Aquinas posed. These sessions then will, using Reichberg’s book as a jumping off point, explore Aquinas’, among others, arguments, their relation to Natural law Theory and to the impact of these on the theories of just war in the Middle Ages and beyond.  

Proposals should be sent to Harvey Brown( hbrown2@uwo.ca) by Sept.21, 2018.
