Matthew Stanley is a concept technician who studies human thinking, belief-formation, and decision-making. As a Christian theologian, his philosophical and psychological inquiry is an integral part of his discipleship. Slavoj Zizek and Friedrich Nietzsche embody the twin currents running through his work, Protestant Christianity and philosophical skepticism. He also bears a debt to the thought and aesthetics of Japan. In his work, he focuses above all on exploring the intricate processes of being a finite creature made for a glorious finitude. Matthew is associated with the Global Centre for Advanced Studies as a GCAS MA Student Researcher.
