PhD student in History and Philosophy of Science
My name is Nathan Bossoh, currently 27 years old, born and raised in Croydon, Surrey. I completed my undergraduate degree in music performance in 2014 and worked as a full-time musician until I took my MSc in Philosophy, Science and Religion in 2018.
Currently, I am a third-year PhD student studying History and Philosophy of Science at UCL and the Royal Institution. My research focus is on the Christian polymath, George Douglas Campbell, otherwise known as the 8th Duke of Argyll. Argyll was an important Victorian politician and aristocrat who engaged extensively in a wide range of areas. These included: geology, geography, ornithology, aeronautics, education and colonial science. He also wrote heavily on evolution, anthropology, economy and Christian theology.
More broadly speaking I am a historian interested in the relations between science, Christianity and race, as well as the various interactions between Western and East Asian (particularly Japanese) science and religion from around 1750 to 1950.
Other (non-specialist) academic interests of mine include:
- Cognitive Science of Religion Studies (CSR)
- Near-Death Experiences (NDEs)
- Philosophy of Religion
