Max Charlesworth: Crossing the Philosophy and religion divide
The Editors and staff of Sophia and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Deakin University invite you to celebrate with us the publication of a special issue of Sophia, 'Max Charlesworth: Crossing the Philosophy and Religion Divide' (Sophia, 51:4, 2012).
This issue of Sophia is a Festschrift in honour of Professor Max Charlesworth, AO, who co-founded Sophia in 1962. He was Reader in Philosophy at the University of Melbourne before going to Deakin University as Planning Dean of the School of Humanities. He remained at Deakin as Professor of Philosophy until 1991 before retiring as Emeritus Professor of Philosophy. He is the author of a number of significant books and articles and an exemplary educational innovator. In a career of public engagement that has spanned some seven decades, Professor Charlesworth has been a major voice in a range of contemporary academic, religious and intellectual debates in the Australian community and internationally.
