About Dr King-Ho Leung

I joined the staff at the University of Chester in 2018, shortly after completing my PhD at the University of Nottingham, where I was also a teaching affiliate in philosophy of religion and Christian theology. My doctoral work examined the relationship between the metaphysical conception of ‘thinking’ and the practice of philosophy as a way of life, for which I was awarded the Heymann Research Prize (for making the best postgraduate research contribution in the Arts and Humanities in the University of Nottingham). Before moving to Nottingham, I also studied political theory and philosophy at the University of St Andrews.

My research interests are broadly in the intersections between continental philosophy and theology, especially philosophy as a way of life, metaphysics, philosophical anthropology, political theology and post-secularism.
