Prof Peter Scott - research
My research focuses on what it means to speak of the goodness of God in the ways of the world. It has two theological themes and two political perspectives:
* The two themes are the doctrines of God and humanity
*The two perspectives are the ecological-natural-technological and the global-democratic.
