Anabaptists & Philosophy Roundtable

Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST

The Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) is excited to join partners at the Doopsgezind SeminariumFresno Pacific University, the Institute of Mennonite Studies, and Pandora Press in the launch of the Anabaptists & Philosophy Roundtable.

The Anabaptists & Philosophy Roundtable is an occasional webinar series featuring scholars discussing Anabaptist life and thought in relation to philosophical themes, topics, and methods. Our events typically include a paper presentation and respondent, followed by open discussion among participants. We hold events online three to four times per year.

Our first event will feature the philosopher Diane Enns (Ryerson University), who will give a paper entitled “The Reluctant Mennonite: Reflections on an Ambiguous Inheritance” with her colleague John Caruana (Ryerson University) providing a response. As background reading, you may also be interested in an essay Professor Enns published entitled “For the Love of Paradox: Mennonite Morality and Philosophy“, which appeared in the volume Religious Upbringing and the Costs of Freedom (Penn State University Press, 2010). The full essay is available by clicking on the preceeding link.

Join us online for this exciting conversation on Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (EST).
