Call for Papers
Presentations on Aquinas and ‘the Arabs’ (inclusive of Maimonides as well) will be considered for sessions of 75-90 min. which allow for extensive discussion.

We will also consider presentations on philosophical issues in the Arabic tradition itself that contribute to the understanding of the sources employed by Aquinas.

  • Established scholars: send a title with an abstract of no more than 150 words.
  • Junior scholars and graduate student: send title, abstract and current CV.


A draft of the complete paper must be sent by 15 August 2014 since we will have commentators for each presentation.

Send submissions for the Program Committee’s consideration to:

Richard.Taylor@Marquette.edu, with a copy to richard.taylor@hiw.kuleuven.be

Any questions should also be sent to these addresses.
