Philosophical Theology

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