WHO IS ISAAC BLAKEMORE?
I’m Isaac Blakemore, a Christian philosopher and cognitive scientist working between the US and London (you can follow me @isaacblakemore on Instagram, Twitter, or YouTube). I am a husband and father, athlete and scholar. Together with my wife and kids we enjoy traveling, eating, reading books, and working out. In another life (my early 20s to be exact) I played professional soccer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Now, I am an elite marathoner and professional runner.
Academically, my research interests are (broadly speaking) philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, analytical psychology, neuroscience, metaphysics, and philosophical theology. Personally, I draw my influences from the works of Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Søren Kierkegaard, Carl Jung, Michael Polanyi, Paul Feyerabend, Thomas Nagel, N.T. Wright, Colin McGinn, Nancy Cartwright, Thomas Sowell, T.F. Torrence, Edward Feser and many others.
I believe that Christian theology can and should take interest in all areas of study and life.
PhD Philosophy (Kings College London, UK) ABD
Master of Arts in Apologetics, with academic distinction, Wesley Biblical Seminary
Named the 2021 John N. Oswalt Excellence in Biblical Scholarship and Teaching Award recipient

I found Theology Weekly in order to provide an engaging, informative, and culturally polemical alternative to the vast number of liberal “Christian” publications. Theology Weekly is a blog, newsletter, and podcast focused on culture, politics, and life from a Christian perspective.
