Montevideo, Uruguay -- Personal Identity and the Afterlife

The University of Montevideo sponsored a study group on “Personal Identity and the Afterlife.” Its purpose was to reflect on the philosophy of religion, from an analytical perspective. The group of researchers, who received support from the Center for the Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame, is made up of professors and students of philosophy and theology. The principal lines of work are centered on the relationship between religion and personal identity, seeking to begin a dialogue on the views of the various religions on life after death.

In what hopefully will be the first in an ongoing series each year, Dr. Guillermo Hurtado, from the National Autonomous University in Mexico, spoke on the epistemological challenges presented by religion. Dr. Georg Gasser, from the University of Innsbruck, Austria, followed with a conference on “Analytical philosophy of religion: a brief introduction.” He stressed the interest of analytical philosophy in the philosophy of religion, in the context of the Anglo-Saxon intellectual world.
