Studiedagen

StudiedagenThinkerDe JohannesAcademie is een van de instituten die in verschillende landen werd gesticht door de Broeders van Sint Jan om de vorming die door pater Marie-Dominique Philippe werd opgezet aan anderen door te geven: een vorming gebaseerd op de drie wijsheden zoals Thomas van Aquino die onderscheidt: de filosofische, de theologische en de mystieke wijsheid. Een aantal docenten van deze instituten hebben zich in hoge mate bekwaamd door filosofisch en theologisch onderzoek, lesgeven en schrijven. De studiedagen werden opgezet om hen als gastdocenten een cursus te kunnen laten geven over een bepaald onderwerp. Een kans om nieuwe inzichten te verwerven door deze internationale sprekers.

Studiedag Truth, what is that?
Truth, doubt, opinion, suspicion and relativism: is objective truth possible?

Studiedag Aristoteles ENGLISH. With P. Thomas Joachim csj, philosopher

Does the value of what you think or say depend upon the force or conviction of your opinion? Is it possible to look for or find what is true, even if there is disagreement? Who am I to know what is true? What about my doubts? What are doubts and can I know anything for sure if there are doubts? Are doubts the same as questions and critical reflexion? Is a doubt the same as a suspicion and how do these play a (helpful and healthy) role my approach to reality, be that people, opinions or God Himself?

The modern era has seen many thinkers who put doubt and suspicion as primary in our lives and contact with others. How has this teaching developed and what are its foundations? Fr Thomas will teach about all these questions and more and help us see more clearly how we can progress in seeking understanding and experience. He will adress the most sensitive and central issues concerning knowledge, truth, reality and relativism in our times.
