Thesis Topic

Parker Haratine primarily researches the nature of evil and sin in dialogue with medieval and contemporary theology. He is specifically interested in the privation theory of evil, the doctrines of original sin and guilt, positive evils, hell, and discussion surrounding the primal choice of sin. Parker’s PhD dissertation addresses how Anselm of Canterbury’s views can contribute to contemporary discussion of original sin, guilt, and positive evils. His work is one of the first comprehensive surveys and analyses of Anselm’s thought in this respect.
