Brief Bio

Neil A. Manson is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Mississippi. His central research interests concern the intersection of philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, and metaphysics. His specific research focus is on contemporary design arguments for the existence of God. In addition to editing the anthology God and Design: The Teleological Argument and Modern Science (Routledge, 2003), he has authored numerous articles on the topic. He also writes on issues in applied ethics, including environmental philosophy and medical ethics. His article “Formulating the Precautionary Principle” (Environmental Ethics 24: 3) is widely cited in the literature, and he was interviewed for BBC Radio 4 program “Analysis: Risky Business.” He holds BA degrees in both English and Philosophy from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a PhD in Philosophy from Syracuse University.
