A good life works out its unique nonfiction story. An evil-doer aims to destroy that story. Hannah Arendt is the political philosopher whose concept of evil as "banal," mindless, bureaucratic behavior gained wide influence. But how did she live out her own story?   Abigail Rosenthal is Professor Emerita of Philosophy, Brooklyn College of The City University of New York. She is the author of A Good Look at Evil, a Pulitzer Prize nominee now available in a revised, expanded…

God Can’t: A Theology for Survivors, Activists, and Everybody Else

March 29 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Butler 201, Claremont School of Theology

Thomas Jay Oord comes to Claremont to discuss the ideas in his new book, God Can't: Hurting people ask heart-felt questions about God and suffering. Some “answers” they receive appeal to mystery: “God’s ways are not our ways.” Some answers say God allows evil for a greater purpose. Some say evil is God's punishment. The usual answers fail. They don't support the truth God loves everyone all the time. God Can't gives a believable answer to why a good and powerful God doesn't prevent…

13th International Forum on Ecological Civilization 2nd International Youth Forum on Ecological Civilization As a positive vision of human flourishing, ecological civilization is about more than what we can do, it involves who we can become. It’s not merely about having more or doing more, but about being more. Being an “eco-person” speaks to the deeper motivations behind the kinds of actions we need to take in response to our complex social and environmental crisis. The development of eco-persons is connected with the qualitative measure…

CPS Student Seminar: Bradford McCall

April 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Haddon, Claremont School of Theology, 1325 North College Avenue
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

"Necessary, Kenotically-donated, & Self-giving Love"   Bradford McCall argues for a notion of love that is necessarily kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling. In so doing, he uses several of Thomas Jay Oord’s texts as a launching point, and will aim at substantiating that this necessary, kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling love is fundamentally an empowerment of the other and allows for the interactivity of matter and the godhead, since it is principally pneumatologically derived by an imbibification of primal, undifferentiated…
