religion and scienceNew e-book!

A new edition of Religion and Science, which was originally published by Hodder Education in their Access series for A-Level, is now available as a Kindle ebook, but its text is still FREE on this website.

The price has also crashed... The book used to be £12.99; the ebook is £1.85! And you can take a look, as well as 'cut and paste' for teaching and study purposes for free. Can't be fairer than that!

To see my range of books on Philosophy, Ethics and Religion...



Welcome to my site!

As well as information about my own books and lecture notes, I've assembled here a range of other material on philosophy and ethics, with my recommendations.

If you have any questions, comments, or material you'd like me to include on this site, please email me by clicking here.  

When it comes to conveying ideas, images can sometimes say more than words. Hence my inclusion of VISUAL PHILOSOPHY on this site - images that make you think!

And while on the site, why not visit my other photo galleries?

Need some help with AS and AS level? Just click on the Notes for students link at the top of the page for my lecture notes on various topics in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics.

There is some wonderful material out there on the web; but new sites and blogs are appearing all the time, and it's difficult to keep track.

Therefore, I'd be very pleased to hear from you if you find a site or blog particularly helpful - anything dealing with religion, philosophy or ethics. Just email me the details.
