  • Dr N.N. (Nick) Trakakis

    After completing undergraduate studies in philosophy and theology, I undertook a PhD in Philosophy at Monash University, working on the problem of evil under Professor Graham Oppy. A revised version of my doctorate was published as "The God Beyond Belief" by Springer in 2007. I continued my research in philosophy at postdoctoral level at Monash, and at the Centre for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame over 2006-2007, where I completed the bulk of my second book, "The End of Philosophy of Religion" (Continuum, 2008). After two years in a joint appointment at Deakin and Monash Universities, I took up my current position at ACU at the beginning of 2011.
