About Thomas Ward

Dr. Ward is an assistant professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University.
He is interested in nearly every area of philosophy, but he mostly enjoys thinking about metaphysics, philosophical theology, and their history. He focuses on the history of metaphysics and philosophical theology in the Late Middle Ages, but not (just) because he likes old stuff. In metaphysics, topics that interests him include substance, hylomorphism, parts and wholes, powers (both active and passive), causality, and modality. In philosophical theology he is currently interested in questions about the divine powers of intellect and will, the relationship between these, and what these have to do with a host of philosophical and theological topics, such as the foundations of modality, metaethics, universals, teleology, creation, and the production of and relationship between Divine Persons.
Dr. Ward received his Ph.D. at UCLA in 2011, and his M.Phil. at Oxford in 2006.
