Conference: John Paul II as Philosopher

In this one-day conference in collaboration with Gresham College, we will discuss John Paul II philosophical legacy.

Karol Wojtyla is well known for having been the Bishop of Krakow. It is less known that he was also the Chair of Ethics at the Catholic University in Lublin. His second doctoral thesis, on ethics, was published in 1960, and he went on to write The Acting Person, a distinctive blend of Aristotelian, Thomist and phenomenological approaches, in 1969. Only a year before the election of Karol (now Cardinal) Wojtyla as the 264th pope of the Roman Catholic Church he gave a talk at a university in Milan called ‘The Problem of Creating Culture through Human Praxis’. In 1978 it was as a formidable philosophical voice and not as a leading Church official that Wojtyla was best known.
