Nathan Guy

Biography:

I am presently a PhD student in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge University, specializing in philosophy of religion and Christian theology. Under the supervision of Janet Martin Soskice, I am working on the theological foundations of John Locke’s political thought. This historical work is situated within my wider interests in the ongoing ethical debates concerning equality, human rights, the origins of morality, and the role of religion in the public square. In 2006, I obtained the MPhil in New Testament studies from Oxford University, writing on the nature of revelation in the Fourth Gospel. In 2011, I completed the MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science, writing on the philosophical challenge—posed by Peter Singer and the Great Ape Project—to intuitions regarding human dignity and equality qua human, absent some transcendent principle. When I am not studying (like that ever happens), I enjoy any activity—especially baseball—that involves spending time with friends.
