This conference will explore the connections between John Henry Newman (1801-1890) and philosophy. Newman wrote on faith and reason, on the development of ideas, liberal knowledge, conscience, belief, and on being a loyal citizen. Can he be read as a philosopher? How was he influenced by philosophy? What are his contributions to philosophical debates? What was his impact on the philosophers of his day and beyond? How relevant is he today?
