Research Interests

With his background in philosophies of religion, mind and language, as well as phenomenology, philosophical theology and interreligious studies, Gorazd’s research interests are different modes of interreligious and religious-secular communication and disagreement (esp. moral and religious), science and religion, epistemological virtues and vices in religious contexts (especially, but not exclusively, in Christianity), and comparative environmentalist philosophy. In theology: Comparative Theology, contemporary Liberal Theology (esp. Christian), Friedrich Schleiermacher, Paul Tillich, interreligious and religious-secular relations/ communication (both theoretically and 'applied', esp. in Solvenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and beyond).
