Dafydd Daniel - New Generation Thinker 2018

Monday, 26 February 2018 - 2:45pm

On 21 February 2018 the Arts and Humanities Research Council, in collaboration with BBC Radio 3, announced its annual list of ten "New Generation Thinkers" at the start of their careers with a gift for communicating their research to the general public.  Among the researchers selected by the AHRC was the newly appointed McDonald Departmental Lecturer in Christian Ethics, Dr Dafydd Daniel.  Dr Daniel, who is based at Jesus College, Oxford, studied Theology & Religious Studies at Cambridge before completing a Masters in Philosophy of Religion at Yale, where he was a Marquand Scholar.  His research has three key strands: the interplay between religious, scientific and ethical ideas in the Enlightenment, with a particular focus on Isaac Newton, and his followers; the history and development of theories of conscience; current debates in sexual, medical, and political ethics, and the philosophy of education.
