Philosophical Theology

Philosophical theology at Oxford comprises analytic philosophy of religion and analytic theology.  Oxford has long been a premier centre for both, home to such seminal figures as Basil Mitchell, Richard Swinburne, Keith Ward, Marilyn Adams and Richard Cross.  Research over a wide range of topics in both fields is currently led by Brian Leftow, William Wood and Timothy Mawson.  There are a visiting speaker series sponsored by the Joseph Butler Society, a regular seminar in analytic theology, up to two graduate classes a year in analytic philosophy of religion, and graduate-student reading and work-in-progress groups.
