The Wheatley Institution is pleased to host Richard G. Swinburne as part of the Science, Scientism, and the Public Good lecture series.

Swinburne is Emeritus Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of the Christian Religion, University of Oxford, and a Fellow of the British Academy.  Swinburne is best known for his work in the philosophy of religion.  He is one of the foremost rational Christian apologists, arguing that faith in Christianity is rational and coherent in a rigorous philosophical sense.  He has been visiting professor at various American and other overseas universities and lectures very widely in many foreign countries. He joined the Orthodox Church in 1995.  He has a B.A. in philosophy, politics and economics (with first class honours) and a B.Phil. in philosophy, both from Oxford.
