We are pleased to launch the John Hick Centre for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Birmingham, UK.
The mission of the centre is to foster excellence in teaching and research in the philosophy of religion from a global perspective. We aim to be a top research centre in the philosophy of religion in Europe. The Centre is located in the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion and is dedicated to promote critical thinking about the metaphysical, epistemological and moral questions concerning religion, belief, and reality.
The activities of the Centre include a regular seminar for staff and students, a visiting speaker programme, academic conferences, collaboration with other scholars (nationally and internationally) in developing research projects, and postgraduate teaching to nurture the next generation of philosophers of religion.
The Centre is named after John Hick, Emeritus H. G. Wood Professor of Theology at the University of Birmingham. Hick is one of the most prominent philosophers of religion in our time and his work has been extremely influential for the last half century. Hick is also highly respected in Birmingham for his community service in the areas of civil rights and inter-faith/inter-race relations.
