PhD student, father, dabbler in various technologies. Fan of science fiction, philosophy, and theology.
My research focuses on scholasticism and the "eternal world" controversy...as well as the pastoral works of Saint Bonaventure. I have been happily married since 2010, and have attended three universities: Truman State, Villanova, and Saint Louis University. I am hoping to become a college professor in the field of theology.
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring new ideas and new places (although I don't get out to camp as often as I would like -- having two-year-old twin daughters can make things like that seem quite daunting!). Sometimes I follow the world of competitive esports: but just Starcraft 2. My favorite science fiction author is Philip K. Dick, and I enjoy the films of Richard Linklater, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, and Hayao Miyazaki. My top three television shows are Arrested Development, The Wire, and Malcolm in the Middle. Runners up as of now are Breaking Bad and Westworld.
I run a website called Conciliar Post. There, people from a variety of Christian traditions get together to dialog about important philosophical and theological questions. You can check out my pieces here: http://www.conciliarpost.com/author/benjamin-winter/
Well, thanks for your time in reading this. I leave you with one of my favorite quotations: "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."
