Interactions between Christian thinkers and continental philosophy often have a critical focus, whether on the intellectual debt continental philosophers owe to the Christian tradition, or on the ways secular philosophers critique classical theological accounts of ultimate reality. The newly-funded Widening Horizons in Philosophical Theology project at the University of St Andrews focuses on the joint potential of theology and continental philosophy for discovery and growth, using the intellectual resources continental philosophy makes available to open new horizons in philosophical theology.
Widening Horizons is offering twelve grants for research projects that advance this constructive aim. Applications may be for
- small projects of up to £60,000 (including c. £8,000 fixed costs); or
- large projects of up to £160,000 (including c. £23,000 fixed costs).
Projects should start between 1st October 2021 and 1st March 2022, and end between 30th September 2023 and 28th February 2024. Most activities may be concentrated within a shorter period if desired.
The call for proposals for these projects is now open until 31 May 2021 (17:00 BST). Application details and further information can be found at: https://philosophical-theology.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/.
