CFP: Special Issue of Quaestiones Disputatae on JPII

In view of next year’s 25th and 20th anniversaries of Veritatis Splendor and Fides et Ratio, the journal is inviting papers on any topic at the intersection of those two encyclicals’ themes.  They explore the transcendentals of goodness and truth in relation to the intellectual and moral powers of the human person, setting those inquiries in the contexts of beauty and faith, as well as of human nature and community.  Quaestiones Disputatae welcomes papers engaging both these encyclicals in light of any of their themes and from a range of disciplinary perspectives, such as philosophy, theology, patristics, literature, and history.  See the attached Call for Papers for further information and some possible topics.

Please address inquiries and papers (the latter as email attachments in Microsoft Word) to the Guest Editor, Dr. Randall Colton, at colton@kenrick.edu.  The deadline is June 11, 2018, with anticipated publication in November, 2018. Find the journal at https://www.franciscan.edu/quaestiones-disputatae/.
