Bio

My research areas encompass moral, political and social philosophy, philosophy of religion, theology, and more recently, political economy. The issues that I have addressed in my publications include personal integrity in organisations, the philosophical anthropology underpinning democracies, social evil, and the dangers of both individualism and collectivism. The twofold aim of my present project is a critique of the ethos behind contemporary economic thinking and practices, and the articulation of alternative accounts of human excellence.
