The College of Arts and Sciences hosted the first annual meeting of the Schelling Society of North America over the Labor Day weekend. The event was co-chaired by Philosophy Professor Jason Wirth and Professor Sean McGrath of Memorial University in Newfoundland.
"Schelling's work on idealism, mythology, and revelation has too often been overlooked," said Wirth. "He was an important German philosopher who is relevant today."
Scholars from throughout the United States as well as Germany, England, Greece, India, Mexico City, and Canada participated in the conference. Joining the presenters was Frau Doktor Professor Lore Hühn of the University of Freiburg, president of the International Schelling Society.
Wirth expects an edited edition of essays from the conference to be published next year.
The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 42 majors, 37 minors, and 7 master’s degrees.
