A one-day conference organized in association with Peter Adamson’s History of Philosophy without Gaps project at King’s College London brought together a number of acclaimed scholars to discuss the relationship between religion and philosophy in a variety of traditions across the globe. How is philosophical thought influenced by religious views and practice in different cultures and civilizations? How did the relationship between the two develop throughout ages in different parts of the world? How do philosophical and theological arguments differ or relate?
