NNU’s Professor Kevin Timpe (of philosophy) and peers receive $97K grant for Fundamental Practices for Intellectual Formation project.

The Saint Louis University philosophy was the recipient of a $2.7 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation for “the Philosophy and Theology of Intellectual Humility.” NNU’s Dr. Kevin Timpe, along with Drs. Rebecca DeYoung (Calvin College) and James Van Slyke (Fresno Pacific University), received $97,000 for a project entitled “Fundamental Practices for Intellectual Formation” within this larger grant.

Recent work in both philosophy and science has revived interest in the virtue of intellectual humility through several projects that attempt to define the virtue conceptually and study its formation through the empirical sciences. Drs. Timpe, DeYoung, and Van Slyke seek to integrate these two areas of research and think practically about how intellectual humility can be formed in community. In addition to individual scholarship, they will run a two-week seminar for scholars from across a number of disciplines at Calvin College in the summer of 2015.
