Early life and educationEdit
Pattison currently holds 1640 Chair of Divinity at the University of Glasgow succeeding Professor Werner Jeanrond who then became Master of St Benet's Hall at the University of Oxford in 2012. Pattison began his professorship at Glasgow in September 2013. In 2017, he gave the Bampton Lectures at the University of Oxford; the series was titled "A Phenomenology of the Devout Life".
Pattison's works range from historical, theological and philosophical engagement with the works of Hans Lassen Martensen, Søren Kierkegaard, Martin Heidegger and Fyodor Dostoyevsky to theological studies of the aesthetics of film and the visual arts. His latest work has engaged with philosophical notions of ontology, entering into the discussion about whether it is meaningful or helpful to speak of God in terms of "being".
