Faculty of Divinity


I am an MPhil student in Philosophy of Religion at the Faculty of Divinity, writing on metaphysical structure and philosophical theology. 

Focussing on the nature and foundations of metaphysics, I hope to articulate, after G. W. F. Hegel, a systematic and self-recursive hermeneutic of speculative totality. This shall provide a theoretical distillate of the inner logic supervising both the genealogical-presuppositional reductions of recent theological interrogations of modernity and elaborate the foundations of their reappraisal of premodern trinitarian metaphysics. To this end, I shall incorporate the work of Radical Orthodoxy, William Desmond, and the 20th-century Jesuit Erich Przywara. My supervisor for this project is Professor Catherine Pickstock. 

I have previously read philosophy at the University of Warwick. There, under the guidance of Professor Stephen Houlgate, I wrote on John Duns Scotus, Immanuel Kant, and Johann Gottfried Herder.
