Research interests

My research orbits both the history of theology, especially the thought of Friedrich Schleiermacher, and issues in natural science, especially evolution. My interests extend out from the former to the history of doctrine and philosophy more broadly including protestant Reformers and early modern philosophers, to Schleiermacher’s contemporaries and successors like G. W. F. Hegel, Charles Hodge, and Paul Tillich. My research in the latter area extends back from Darwin to pre-Darwinian theorists of evolution and extinction to recent issues such as the role of female choice in sexual selection.
