I moved to Edinburgh in 1998, after holding a research fellowship in theology at the University of Cambridge.
My research is in German Philosophy and philosophical aspects of inter-faith engagement.
I describe my work as 'reparative reasoning': identifying and remedying problems in philosophical method by drawing on deeper patterns of reasoning in the Christian tradition. These include patterns discernable in scripture (e.g. the relation between suffering and healing) and in doctrine (e.g. the relation between the divine and human natures in the Chalcedonian formula).
