The Thomistic Institute at the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception is offering several programs this summer of 2018. For more information go to the Thomistic Institute webpage.

June 5-8, Thomistic Philosophy and the Modern Sciences, a Symposium.
This seminar will bring together expert scientists and philosophers to discuss the potential compatibility and mutual enrichment of the study of Aquinas' philosophy of nature and various forms of modern scientific knowledge in physics, biology and neuroscience. The symposium will be held at Theological College in Washington, DC. It is co-sponsored by the Thomistic Institute and the Society of Catholic Scientists

Graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the sciences or philosophy who are interested in attending the symposium should submit an application. Applications will be accepted beginning January 29th. Space is limited.

June 14-17, 8th Annual Philosophy Workshop, Aquinas on the Divine Attributes.
The Catholic intellectual tradition has staunchly maintained that God’s existence can be known by reason alone and long heralded St. Thomas Aquinas’s Five Ways as prime examples of plausible demonstrations. This year’s workshop on the divine attributes will serve as a robust introduction to Aquinas’s natural theology for the Thomistic beginner and a speculative advancement for the veteran. Specific divine attributes will be explored as well as the broader issues of the possibility of knowledge of God in this life and divine naming.

We will hold an intensive study of St. Thomas's teaching on the divine attributes at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Catholic and Dominican Institute of Mount Saint Mary College, and the Notre Dame Center for Ethics & Culture. A limited number of scholarships are available for graduate students. Contact the Thomistic Institute to see if you are eligible. Applications accepted beginning January 16th.

July 15th - 20th, An Introduction to the Natural Law Tradition.
The Civitas Dei Summer Fellowship supports rising scholars seeking inspiration from the natural law tradition within the contemporary academic context. The Institute for Human Ecology and the Thomistic Institute are partnering to offer the Civitas Dei Summer Fellowship for students in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. The week-long seminar will be held in Washington, DC at the Theological College. 

Open to qualified graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Applications will be received starting January 15th.
