Location: Heythrop College, Kensington Square, London W8 5HN

William J Abraham writes enthusiastically of the recent rapid growth in analytic theology and its significant contribution to ‘the revitalisation of theology as a serious discipline’ (Farris & Taliaferro, The Ashgate Research Companion to Theological Anthropology, 2015, xiii).  Analytic anthropology has typically focused on those issues best suited to its characteristically precise and formal methods.  These include the ontology of human beings, the imago dei, the general resurrection and aspects of human nature such as the will, sin and salvation.  This day conference will include a number of papers considering such focal topics but will be centred on discussion of the role of analytic philosophy in a larger philosophical and theological terrain.  The keynote lecture will reflect on analytic philosophy, naturalism, and doctoral studies in Europe and America in philosophy and theology.
