Going to Cambridge

WK&C readers may be interested to know that your humble author will soon be relocating to Cambridge. I submitted and passed my MPhil at the Australian Catholic University a few months ago, and I’ll be starting a PhD in philosophy of religion at Cambridge in October. I’ll be working in the Divinity faculty, and writing on the philosophy of nature: can Aristotle and the theologians who followed him be reconciled to Darwin? can the scientific image be reconciled to the manifest image? can phenomenology speak to biology? I’ll work around questions like these.

Kate and I are very excited about the move, though we will of course miss our wonderful family and friends here in Australia. We have been warned about the weather.

I intend to carry on blogging here at WK&C during my doctoral studies, so you can look forward to at least another three years worth of absolutely irresistible content.
