Asfandyar Qureshi


Asfandyar Qureshi is a Philosophy of Religion MPhil student in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge. His primary area of research concerns the field of moral epistemology, exploring how (if at all) we can come to have moral knowledge, and how (if at all) moral beliefs are to be justified. Specifically, he wishes to engage in a critical appraisal of the answers to these questions put forward by a school of thought within Islamic theology known as the Ash'aris.

His background is mostly in analytic philosophy, having been a Philosophy, Politics and Economics student at Oxford. He is fortunate enough to be the recipient of Cambridge's Hartwell & Sheik Zayed Studentship.
