R. Anthony Buck

R. Anthony Buck holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in Theology from the University of Oxford. His research deploys Bourdieu's sociological analysis on academic theology and incorporates cognitive science research on narrativisation in order to subvert the symbolic violence displayed towards narrative forms of theology and construct a more academically legitimate and scientifically informed expression of narrative theologising and remove structural barriers to academic narrative theologising. Hopefully, this will make theology more inclusive and an act of intellectual liberation, by reorienting from seeking knowledge as a form of social power towards pursuing love in phronetic narration in which genuine knowledge can be found and life liberated from symbolic violence. He has also contributed articles covering cutting-edge themes and events in religion and society, especially including AI ethics, for the European Academy on Religion and Society
