Within the context of the John-Templeton Project "Analytic Theology" at the Universities of Innsbruck and Frankfurt and the Munich School of Philosophy, the Templeton-Cluster-Initiative of the Ludwig- Maximilians-University Munich and the Munich School of Philosophy is organizing a Master-class on "Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom" from February 16th 2012 until February 19th 2012, focussed on the classical theories of Thomism and Molinism and their modern continuations in form of analytical Thomism and analytical Molinism. The master class will be taught by Brian Leftow (Oriel College, University of Oxford, UK) and Kenneth Perszyk (Victoria University, New Zealand).

Recent PhDs (2006 or later) and current graduate students in philosophy and theology are invited to apply. By a “recent PhD” we mean an individual who completed his or her PhD in 2006 or later. We welcome applications from individuals of any philosophical persuasion with a strong interest in analytic philosophy vis-à-vis religious beliefs.

The organizers encourage submission of research paper by graduate students and recent PhDs. The papers should address topics within the overall concept of the master-class. There are 6 spots for such papers at the master-class; 30 minutes each. What the Master-class is aiming to achieve: Teaching, intensive work, discussion and fruitful exchange with graduate students over the period of four days on the topics above.
