I was pleased to give a paper on Løgstrup and Iris Murdoch at the Joseph Butler Society for Philosophy of Religion, based in Oxford – though of course the talk was given online. The title was ‘Can We Make Ourselves Morally Better? Murdoch and Løgstrup on Evil, Grace, and Techniques of Unselfing’
I am very pleased to report that Løgstrup has been chosen as their philosopher of the month by Oxford University Press! This is a good sign of the growing interest in his work. See the details here, including links to the various translations and publications being produced by OUP. There is also a blog associated with this page.
I have had two articles published in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy relating to my recent research work on Martin Luther – one is on Luther himself, and the other on Luther’s influence on subsequent philosophers, such as Hobbes, Leibniz, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Heidegger – and Løgstrup! You can access the articles here:
I am very pleased to announce that Oxford University Press have recently published translations of The Ethical Demand, Kierkegaard’s and Heidegger’s Analysis of Existence and its Relation to Proclamation, and Ethical Concepts and Problems. This is in a series of publications of translations of Løgstrup’s work, being co-edited by myself and Bjørn Rabjerg. You can find further details here.
A new translation of Løgstrup’s ‘Humanism and Christianity’ article has been published in the Journal for the History of Modern Theology, together with a paper on Løgstrup’s article by myself and Bjørn Rabjerg. See details here
I have kindly been invited to give the Løgstrup lecture at Aarhus this year, which is a great honour. See further details here
There are two new publications that relate to Løgstrup’s view of Luther, Kierkegaard and proclamation
The first is a translation of Løgstrup’s article ‘The Category and the Office of Proclamation, with Particular Reference to Luther’
And the second is an article discussing this paper, co-written with my colleagues Chris Bennett and Paul Faulkner: ‘Indirect Communication, Authority, and Proclamation as a Normative Power: Løgstrup’s Critique of Kierkegaard’
Both these publications are in the latest issue of the Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal: here
I will giving a paper at the centenary conference of the Iris Murdoch Society in Oxford, 13-15 July, St Anne’s College. Mark Hopwood and I have organised a panel discussing Løgstrup’s relation to Murdoch. My paper is entitled:
‘Eros, Axioms, Duty, and the Void: A Comparison Between the Structure of Murdoch’s Ethics, and Løgstrup’s’
