Philip Clayton is Ingraham (M.A., M.Phil., Ph.D., Yale University) is Professor of Theology at the Claremont School of Theology and professor of philosophy and religion at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California. He is also the author of Explanation from Physics to Philosophy: An Essay in Rationality and Religion (Yale) and the Templeton Prize,winning book God and Contemporary Science (Eerdmans).Dr. Clayton's quest is to develop a constructive Christian theology in dialogue with metaphysics, modern philosophy, and science. The demands of this task have led to his work and publications in the theory of knowledge; the history of philosophy and theology; the philosophy of science; physics, evolutionary biology and the neurosciences; comparative theology; and constructive metaphysics. A panentheist, he defends a form of process theology that is hypothetical, dialogical and pluralistic as evident in the edited work In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being: Panentheistic Reflections on God's Presence in a Scientific World and The Problem of God in Modern Thought .
