Jacobus Erasmus

Hi! I am a Christian philosopher, apologist, author, and programmer. Follow my blog, follow me on Facebook, or read more about me...

Having completed a post-doctoral research position at North-West University, I am currently a visiting researcher in philosophy at the university. I completed my PhD in philosophy in 2016, with the dissertation topic: Towards a more persuasive kalām cosmological argument: Permitting the actual infinite.

My research interests include metaphysics, the philosophy of religion, the kalām cosmological argument, the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of time. Apart from my philosophy degrees, I also hold an Honours BSc in Information Technology.
