4th WORLD CONGRESS ON

LOGIC AND RELIGION

Sinaia, Romania
September 18-23, 2023

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. 

 

There have been three editions of the WoCoLoR: in Joao Pessoa, Brazil (2015), in Warsaw, Poland (2017), and in Varanasi, India (2022). They provoked interesting discussions, inspired the cooperation of scholars representing various fields, and yielded many interesting results, which were later published in several volumes
