March 2014 marks the 95th birthday of G.E.M. Anscombe (1919 - 2001), one of the twentieth century’s most provocative and highly regarded philosophers.


Many conferences on Anscombe’s work have focused on her contributions to moral philosophy and action theory. This conference focuses on the question: What are Anscombe’s contributions — actual and potential — to the Catholic intellectual tradition?
