The Logic and Religion Project joined the dozens of worldwide initiatives in celebration of World Logic Day and promoted, on January 14, 2021, the free online event “Logic and Religion” on the World Logic Day 2021.
Talks were streamed via the Logic and Religion Youtube channel. More than 500 people watched them, which is significant for an academic conference.
Among the renowned scholars who spoke at the conference, we can mention Piergiorgio Odifreddi (University of Turin, Italy), Stanislaw Krajewski (University of Warsaw, Poland), Stephen Priest (University of Oxford, UK), Kelly Clark (Grand Valley State University, USA) and Howard Resnick (Hridayananda Das Goswami), from the Bhaktivedanta Institute for Higher Studies (Gainesville, USA). Dr. Resnick’s lecture, entitled “Reason (Buddhi) in Bhagavad-Gītā,” was well received and provided an important contribution of the bhakti tradition to the debate on logic and religion, reason and faith, rational inquiry and divine revelation.
