Nathaniel Warne is a philosophical and systematic theologian that works across a range of classic Christian doctrines with a special focus on the doctrine of humanity. This interest underlies his writings and teaching at the intersection of metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy; theology of work, doctrine of vocation, and economics; law and legal history; Christology; creation; religious emotions; and the role of friendship in moral and spiritual development. He has addressed the above topics through the work of Aristotle, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas and Early Modern philosophers and theologians. His current research is on Josef Pieper with special focus on the relationship between individual and communal human flourishing (happiness) and virtue development as related to work and leisure.
