Marc Lalonde

LalondeComplete profile on Concordia University’s departement of religion website »

Marc P. Lalonde is a philosopher of religion whose research explores the relationship between religion and critical theory within the contemporary world. This has resulted in a book on the theological appropriation of Jurgen Habermas, as well as a more original effort to establish a “critical theory of religious insight.” Alongside these endeavours, Lalonde also focuses on modern Jewish and Christian thought, especially in relation to the Holocaust. Lalonde’s most current research interest pursues a reconstruction of contemporary Christian thought in view of modern Jewish responses to the Holocaust.  Many of these themes and issues have been fruitfully explored within his undergraduate and graduate teaching assignments.
