Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am Lecturer in Philosophy of Education at Strathclyde University. I teach across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes within Education Studies. I am the course Leader for Joint Honours Education, and students on that programme are welcome to contact me at any time by email. My office is also on 2nd floor of Lord Hope and students are also welcome to come along to talk with me (best to make an appointment in case I am out).

 

My research interests include philosophy of education, philosophy of religion and philosophy of technology. I am author of Technology and the Philosophy of Religion (Cambridge Scholars 2011) and have co-edited (with Todd Mei) From Ricoeur to Action: the Socio-Political Significance of Ricoeur’s Thinking (Continuum 2012) and (with Alexandre Guilherme and Morgan White) New Perspectives in Philosophy of Education (Bloomsbury 2014) as well as numerous articles and chapters. I have recently published 'Educational Philosophy for a Post-secular Age' (Routledge, 2016).
