Meer oor Philip Clayton:

Philip Clayton is a leading figure in the field of science and religion. Currently Ingraham professor of theology at Claremont School of Theology and professor of philosophy and theology at Claremont Graduate University, he obtained doctorates in both philosophy and theology at Yale University and studied under Wolfhart Pannenberg, whose work he translated and commented on. He was awarded the prestigious Templeton research prize in 1999 and has written extensively on subjects ranging from science, religion and ecology to the emergentist hypothesis to evolution and ethics. A panentheist par excellence, he is developing a Christian theology which spans the entire spectrum of philosophy and science in a manner reminiscent of the late Alfred Peacocke, with whom he co-edited work on God’s presence in a scientific world. His work manifestly overlaps that of Unisa’s Science and Religion Forum and his series of lectures will be an outstanding contribution to the local debate.
