Karol Wojtyła as Philosopher of Encounter

January 25 at 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The John Paul II Institute invites you to a lecture on “Karol Wojtyła as Philosopher of Encounter” by Dr. Grzegorz Ignatik on Wednesday, January 25, at 4:00 p.m. in Keane Auditorium in McGivney Hall.

The lecture will present the relevance of Karol Wojtyła’s thought for life today by highlighting several themes of encountering the other, found in his pre-papal writings. Dr. Ignatik will also discuss the significance of the current translation project, the English Critical Edition of the Works of Karol Wojtyła/John Paul II, and working with Wojtyła’s original manuscripts.

An Institute alumnus (Ph.D. ’14), Dr. Ignatik is Associate Professor of Theology at the Pontifical College Josephinum. He serves as lead translator and editor of manuscripts for the English Critical Edition of the Works of Karol Wojtyła/John Paul II (CUA Press), which published Volume 1: Person and Act and Related Essays in 2021, and will publish Volume 2: The Lublin Lectures and Works on Max Scheler in 2023. He is also the translator of Wojtyła’s Love and Responsibility (Pauline Books and Media, 2013) and author of Person and Value: Karol Wojtyła’s Personalistic and Normative Theory of Man, Morality, and Love (Lexington Books, 2021).

We hope you will join us for this lecture, followed by a reception in Keane Auditorium lobby.
