Baylor’s Bob Roberts to be Plantinga Fellow
March 21, 2011 — 11:27

I’d like to congratulate my wonderful colleague Bob Roberts on becoming the next Plantinga fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Religion at Notre Dame, directed by Mike Rea.
Bob is an excellent choice and we are thrilled for him. Bob does really interesting work on emotions and especially their connection to normativity. I believe he’ll be completing a book project on emotions while there.
I’m especially glad he got it, as I’ll be there as well on a skeptical theism fellowship as part of a really exciting project they are working on with help from the Templeton Foundation.
