Sean McGrathDr. Sean McGrath, B.A. Ottawa, M.A. St. Michael’s, Ph.D. Toronto

Theological Studies
Phone: (709) 864-3754
Email: sjoseph.mcgrath@gmail.com

Dr. Sean J. McGrath is a Full Professor of Philosophy at Memorial University of Newfoundland and a Member of the Royal Society of Canada. McGrath is an internationally recognized specialist in the philosophy of religion and the history of theology and philosophy, with a great diversity of publications—from medieval metaphysics to contemporary phenomenology, Protestant mysticism to German Idealism, 20th century existentialism to environmental philosophy. As a theologian, McGrath is tracking a set of questions concerning the legacy of Christianity in today’s secular society. The thread that unites his many books and academic papers is the problem of secularization. Where most theories of secularization speak of the progressive separation of culture from religion, McGrath understands the phenomenon to be far more complex. Secular society is itself a product of the Christian religion. In his recent work, McGrath has engaged both psychoanalysis and environmentalism as animated by forms of Christian thought. In terms of Systematic Theology, McGrath teaches and researches in the areas of Trinity, Christology, and Eschatology.
