In a world where people tend to take things for granted, we need a good deal of critical thinking. JESPHIL provides this critical thinking approach to hot subjects through a Jesuit perspective. The network consists of a group of European Jesuit philosophers who meet every two years to make a philosophical contribution to the study of topical issues and to support the role of philosophy within Jesuit formation.
The group encourages networking and cooperation between member institutions by working together on the same topics. Among the themes tackled are : “Secularization, Secularity, Secularism. The Prospects of Belief/ Unbelief in a Secular Age”; “Philosophy in the Spiritual Exercises”; “Does Capitalism impede Human Flourishing?” and “Criticism and Culture: the role of Ontology”.
