Joe Milburn recently completed his doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh.
His research centers on Epistemology, Philosophy of Religion, and Early Modern Philosophy. While at the Center for Philosophy of Religion he will work on the topic of religious and philosophical indifference. Questions to be addressed include the following: What is the nature of religious indifference? When is it rational to be indifferent to the claims of religion? When is it irrational? What is the nature of religious inquiry? Is it a species of theoretical or practical inquiry or is it sui generis? Joe will also address how religious indifference has figured into the thinking of figures such as Blaise Pascal and John Henry Newman.
