Jules,

Hmmm...it is linked via Microsoft Silverlight but when I clicked on the link, it automatically loaded the conference.  I suppose if one does not have MS Silverlight, it may ask to install.  When you did that were you eventually connected to the conference?  One used to be able to access the conference video from Duquesne's website but that no longer appears to be the case.  At least not from my computer...which is at times tempermental!  Here's that link just in case only my computer is choosing to be non-cooperative!  http://www.duq.edu/phenomenology/  Hopefully one of these options will work.

Wonderful, John!  Here’s a link that may interest you:

It’s a video of a thought provoking symposium entitled “Music and Phenomenology” that was sponsored earlier this year by the Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center- a real gem of a place!- at my alma mater, Duquesne University. The video is only 1.5 hours of the entire conference and well worth the time investment if you're interested in the relationship between music, 'being', and language.  Blessings!

Re: Personhood and the Kingship of Christ

The royalty of personhood is quite a beautiful meditation.  Matt, I understand your point about sovereignty. And Katie, I appreciate your desire to engage in a philosophical reflection apart from Scripture as it were.  However, "royalty" generally connotes ancentry. Therefore, I think applying the term to "royalty" to personhood apart from Scripture is misplaced. Instead, I think the fullness of the "royalty of personhood" comes to light in Scripture/salvation history- beginning with life in the Garden of Eden before the Fall and 'ending' with the Incarnation, the Passion and the Ascension of Our Lord. Though really is no "end" our love affair with God (which is why I put is in semi-quotes) as the Saints are loving on high as sons and daughters of the King.  I must say though that this quick, mini-reflection on the royalty of personhood has had its sweetness by revealing the *beauty* of the truth that we are indeed "a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God".  For, only in relation to God is our status elevated to such majestic heights. 

Stay informed
