“God in the Depths of the Mind:
Plotinus and Augustine’s Trinitarian Speculation”

presented by
Dr Joseph S. O’Leary
Sophia University, Japan

One of the original sources of the ‘theological turn’ in phenomenology, Dr O’Leary is a theologian of international renown who has engaged equally with neo-Platonism and with post-Heideggerian philosophy. He has just published the third volume of a theological ‘trilogy’, Conventional and Ultimate Truth (Notre Dame, 2015) – the companion to Questioning Back (Winston, 1985) and Religious Pluralism and Christian Truth (Edinburgh, 1996). Other notable publications include L’art du jugement en théologie and Christianisme et philosophie chez Origène.
