The conference will broadly explore the resources of neo-Aristotelian thought, especially as they might be brought to bear on reframing moral discourse in a world increasingly shaped by the market, the state, bureaucracy, and technology. Alasdair MacIntyre has both shone a spotlight on the futility of rational dialogue in an emotivist culture and renewed efforts to rediscover the insights of Aristotle, Aquinas, and Marx. As this leading thinker and critic of modernity turns 90 this year, we come together from a variety of disciplines and countries to engage in this important collaborative work.
