3rd WORLD CONGRESS ON

LOGIC AND RELIGION

IIT & the DST-CIMS, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi (India)
November 4-8, 2022

THE CONFERENCE

The World Congress on Logic and Religion - WoCoLoR

 

Although logic, a symbol of rationality, may appear to be opposed to religion, both have a long history of cooperation. Logical concepts and tools have always played important roles in the world's religious traditions; philosophical theology has provided many illustrious attempts to prove the existence of God. Nevertheless, it seems that as an academic field, the area of logic and religion has not yet been consolidated. 

 

The purpose of the World Congress on Logic and Religion (WoCoLoR) series is to bridge this gap by providing a place where scholars from all fields, as well as theologians of all religions, can come together to hear from one another about the latest developments in the relationship between logic and religion, reason and faith, rational inquiry and divine revelation. 

The 3rd WoCoLoR 2022

 

The 3rd World Congress on Logic and Religion (3rd WoCoLoR 2022) takes place at the Banaras Hindu University, in Varanasi, India, November 4-8, 2022. It is jointly organized by the Logic and Religion Association (LARA), the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) of the Banaras Hindu University (BHU), and the DST-Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences (CIMS), Institute of Science, BHU.

 

The contributed papers are on general topics related to Logic and Religion, including but not restricted to:

 

  • Arguments for and against God’s existence

  • Logic and the concept of God 

  • Science and religion

  • Rationality and religious belief

  • Argumentation and reason in world religious traditions

  • Justification in religious legal traditions

  • Non-classical logics and religion

  • Religion and history of logic
