Walton Presents Paper at Midsouth Philosophy Conference

Melanie WaltonAssistant Professor in Belmont’s Department of Philosophy Mélanie Walton, recently presented a paper at the 39th annual Midsouth Philosophy Conference at Rhodes College in Memphis.

The paper, entitled “Inclining Thought: Heidegger and Anselm,” is an exploration into the necessity of actualizing one’s natural rational disposition through cultivating a specific inclination to reason, proposed by the contemporary existentialist Martin Heidegger and curiously demonstrated by the medieval philosopher Saint Anselm. While at the conference, Walton also delivered a response paper on John Duns Scotus and the nature of God’s will.
