Nigel Biggar’s research interests include the formative bearing of religious concepts on moral life; the contribution of religion to the health of liberal societies; the development of a concept of 'public reason' that permits the engagement of metaphysically contradictory positions; theories of natural law; the theology and ethics of national identity and loyalty, of forgiveness, of killing (especially in relation to suicide, euthanasia and war), of military intervention and of burying the past after civil conflict; the vocation of universities. Additional information about Professor Biggar is available at
