PhD title: Action and Heaven
Supervisor: Professor Yujin Nagasawa
PhD Philosophy


My research is focused on the nature of human action in the context of the theistic notion of Heaven. I am particularly interested in whether any contemporary models of free will and moral responsibility can provide an intelligible framework for determining if humans in heaven can be free and morally responsible for their action there. I am presently evaluating the strengths of Source Incompatibilism, as numerous writers have recently advocated something like it in effort to explain how humans can be free and responsible in heaven.
