Dr. John Ray Has Peer-Reviewed Paper Accepted for Presentation


Dr. John W. Ray of Montana Tech’s Liberal Studies Department has had a peer-reviewed paper entitled “The Explanation of Evil Action in Christian Moral Philosophy: Aquinas v. Plato” accepted for presentation at the 10th International Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society to be held this spring at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

The paper investigates the interaction of knowledge and choice and whether or not a person knowing the good thing to do will automatically do it. The tension between reason and will and the nature of reason and will is at the heart of western moral philosophy.

Dr. Ray teaches philosophy, ethics and political theory classes at Montana Tech.
