POGOS: Eleonore Stump on Aquinas’ Understanding of a Life in Grace
This week in Pogos we start off our Logos Conference 2019 series of presentations with Professor Eleonore Stump’s presentation of “A Life in Grace” followed by a response from Dr Jonathan Rutledge. We hope you enjoy!
Eleonore Stump (Robert J. Henle, S.J., Professor of Philosophy at Saint Louis University) specializes in Medieval Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, and Metaphysics and is the author of several monumentally important volumes, including her Aquinas, Wandering in Darkness, and most recently Atonement (a volume in the Oxford Studies in Analytic Theology series). She also serves as an Honorary Professor at the Logos Institute (St Andrews, Scotland) and Wuhan University (China), a Visiting Professor at Australian Catholic University, and a Patron of the Aquinas Institute (Blackfriars Hall, Oxford).
Jonathan C Rutledge is a producer and host of the Logos Institute’s official podcast, Pogos, as well as its blog, creatively-dubbed Blogos. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Oklahoma, where he studied under Linda T. Zagzebski, and he holds a Ph.D. in divinity from the University of St Andrews where he studied under Alan J. Torrance. He currently serves as a research fellow at the Logos Institute, and his primary academic interests lie in the areas of epistemology, philosophy of religion, and systematic & analytic theology. His current projects include a monograph on the nature of forgiveness & a sacrificial model of atonement, philosophical Arminianism as an account of divine creation, and constructing a Foley-inspired account of epistemic rationality & defeat. His favorite pastime involves walking on the East Sands with his son, Caspian, and spouse, Bethany.
