£2m grant for Philosophical Theology

A new grant of £2m from the Templeton Religion Trust will allow me and my team to set new directions for research in philosophical theology in the broadly continental tradition, building on collaborative work we began in New Directions in Philosophical Theology.

The project aims to strengthen the constructive and discovery-oriented potential of philosophical theology in the continental tradition by funding up to twelve one- to two-year research projects at various institutions, coordinated by a programme of research and events at St Andrews. The Call for Proposals for subsidiary projects, which should address areas of strategic attention outlined in the project’s vision statement, is now open.

Applications for large projects of up to £160,000 or small projects of up to £60,000, running for up to two years from 2021 (or early 2022), are warmly invited. The call closes on 31 May 2021.

I will be joined on the project team by Dr King-Ho Leung (as co-director of research), as well as by Mr Sterling Yates (project manager) and Ms Dorothy Campbell (as administrative assistant).

More information is available on the project website.
