The relationship of early Christian theology to philosophy is near and dear to me. I am in the process of doing final edits on my translation of a book on that very topic, Dariusz Karlowicz’s Socrates and Other Saints.

The same topic is picked up by distinguished professors Remi Brague and Brian Daley, SJ. They are the co-winners of the 2012 Ratzinger Prize, the so-called “Theology Nobel.”

See their discussion below:

The above lecture was hosted by the Lumen Christi Institute at the University of Chicago. I previously linked a debate between Remi Brague and Jean-Luc Marion Does Christianity Need Metaphysics? also hosted by them. I should add that the University of Chicago Press publishes many path-breaking Catholic-interest books. Chicago, my kind of town.
