Call for Proposals

This Group invites proposals for papers engaging with Schleiermacher’s ethics, particularly his Christian Ethics. Papers may address such issues as the descriptive method Schleiermacher employs in his ethical thinking, the scope and character of his ethical system, and the development of his ethical thought. Papers regarding the influence of Schleiermacher on later ethicists are also welcome. Attention to Christian Ethics is particularly invited in light of recent publications, including the English translation of selections from that work by James Brandt and Hermann Peiter’s Christian Ethics According to Schleiermacher (Pickwick Publications, 2010). Presenters will submit their full papers by October 15, 2013, to be made available for downloading in advance of the Annual Meeting.


This Group is committed to the following:

  • Providing a forum for sustained and focused study of texts — texts penned by Schleiermacher, read by Schleiermacher, and inspired by Schleiermacher

  • Identifying theological, religious, ethical, and philosophical themes with a wide range of appeal and contemporary relevance and sponsoring sessions on them

  • Balancing the interests and scholarship of specialists and nonspecialists alike

  • Identifying, helping to establish, and supporting scholarship in new areas of Schleiermacher research

  • Being fully and creatively engaged in theological conversations in the AAR and inviting serious scholarship on Schleiermacher’s oeuvre — scholarship that will shape the questions for the next generation of Schleiermacher scholars
