Our striving for knowledge is a declaration of love. By gaining wisdom we are loved in return. – Claus Janew lives in Dresden and Bonn, Germany, and has been an independent researcher in philosophy for 28 years. He discovered the infinitesimality structure, an explanation of both consciousness and reality being a direct solution to the problem of free will. The basics have been published in German and English journals. A comprehensive book about his new metaphysics has been published in German, furthermore a self-help guide and a metaphysical dialogue.

…PhD Thesis: “Divine Simplicity and the Triune Identity: A Critical Dialogue with the Theological Metaphysics of Robert W. Jenson”…

I am a first year PhD student in Christian Theology at the University of Cambridge. My thesis explores the relationship between the doctrines of divine simplicity and the Trinity, with special attention to the revisionary metaphysics of Robert W Jenson. I am an adjunct instructor for Southern Nazarene University (Bethany, OK, USA). I am interested in Christian and Platonic metaphysics, particularly in participation and the analogia entis. I am also interested in theological aesthetics, the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, the theology of sanctification, and theological epistemology.

My research interests comprise the study of human and non-human relations among the Shuar of the ecuadorian Amazon, as well as their conceptualizations of nature in all its physical and metaphysical nuances. Moreover, i am also interested in the study of the relationships that exist between culture and nature in the cultural landscapes and the valorization of this complex heritage by the local communities and tourists.

This sub-theme is focused on metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of language (and where those intersect) and builds on the ideas of Quine and (especially) Davidson.

My philosophical interests are divided over two broad areas. One is in the overlap of (meta-) ethics and social/political philosophy; the other is in the intersection of philosophy of language, metaphysics, and epistemology. Much (but not all) of my work is most closely affiliated with the analytic tradition both in style and content, and much of it is heavily influenced by the philosophies of Donald Davidson and W.V.O. Quine, but I am also interested in (parts of) Indian, Chinese, and continental philosophy. Before I became a “philosopher” I was an economic geographer. I gradually moved from one discipline to the other, but I remain interested in geography, heterodox economics, and in the other social sciences as well.
