Faculty of Divinity



Dr Qureshy read for a MA in Ancient Philosophy at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford (Oriel College) with a dissertation on Aristotle’s theory of metabasis in the Posterior Analytics and a PhD in Philosophical Theology at the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge (Wolfson College) with a thesis that explored the development of theological method in the classical Ash‘arī school.


Dr Qureshy’s current research is focussed on three main areas: knowledge and methods of reasoning in Aristotle, specifically in Topics and Prior- and Posterior Analytics; theological method and systematicity in the Islamic philosophico-theological tradition post-Juwaynī; and post-Razian developments in logic.
