LDS-Catholic-Protestant Debate

I thought the LDS-Catholic-Protestant debate went very well, and there was no shortage of student interest, comments, and questions (I fielded questions for over an hour after the debate).  Since the topic is more theology and philosophical-theology than philosophy proper, I thought I would manage the discussion over at my blog.  Feel free to click over there to continue the conversation with comments or questions: I will be most interested in discussing what I thought arose as the principle point of difference between the LDS and the Christian.  It boils down to the issue of transcendence – is God radically other as Creator over and against creature, or are God and man of similar ontological status?

About Kleiner

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.

    Looks like it was a very active and thought-provoking event! I enjoyed the newspaper article about it, especially the complaint that is was ‘too deep.’ Can you go a bit shallower next time, fellas?
