The Fourth Fernando Rielo School for Humanities, Metaphysics, and Mystical Studies of the Menéndez Pelayo International University (UIMP) and the Fernando Rielo Foundation have been closed with the theme “Challenges for a new humanism, thinking, art and education”. It has been held from 18 to 21 July and has taken place in the magnificent facilities of the UIMP, in the Magdalena Palace (Santander, Spain).

As in previous editions, the level of the presentations and the round tables of this course has been very high since they have generated deep and interdisciplinary debates around the challenges that society has today to develop a true humanism that potentie and elevate the human person and society.

The metaphysical foundations, theology, anthropology, aesthetic perspective and education have been the axes on which the expositions, theses and debates have pivoted, in dialogue with other human dimensions such as law, economics, sociology, arts, politics and technology, and the many challenges they pose.

In the evaluation session, many of the participants agreed on the original and necessary contribution of the anthropological approaches of Fernando Rielo and his contribution to a new humanism in today’s society. They suggested the importance of comparative studies between Rielo and other authors and to further develop their thinking.

The director of this course and the section of thought of the Fernando Rielo Foundation, Juana Sánchez-Gey Venegas, expressed in the conclusion session the interesting ways that this course has opened: continue to spread the thoughts of Fernando Rielo; promote the execution of doctoral theses on it; the importance of the seminar that makes the Fernando Rielo Foundation in Madrid on the philosophy of Fernando Rielo and the relevance of the World Conferences on Metaphysics, that will realize the Idente Foundation of Studies and Research in 2018.
