B.A., Philosophy and Theology, University of Notre Dame
M.T.S., University of Notre Dame


Dylan Belton is a Ph.D. candidate in Systematic Theology. Originally from South Africa, he completed both a B.A. in Philosophy and Theology as well as a Masters in Theological Studies at the University of Notre Dame. While his interests range widely, his research has so far tended to focus on the relation(s) between theology, the philosophy of nature and anthropology, and evolutionary biology. In his dissertation, he will focus on the relation between the disciplines of the philosophy of the organic, philosophical anthropology, and theological anthropology within the contemporary era, with the aim of bringing this work into dialogue with current debates in evolutionary biology and anthropology. Aside from this dissertation research, he is also interested in questions pertaining to technology and what technological developments entail for Christian theology both in the present and in the near future.
