I work in a contested but vital area of education: religious studies, philosophy and ethics. I am an advocate of diverse forms of traditional and faith-based educational practices. I believe that education should above all foster goodness, truth and loveliness in the diverse ways these ideals may manifest in any given context. I am currently working on philosophical issues surrounding moral education and pedagogies of religious education.
