Thomas Talbott

After 34 years of teaching philosophy at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, I retired from full-time teaching in May of 2006. My principal area of interest and the area in which I have done most of my own writing is philosophy of religion—which, of course, overlaps with metaphysics, epistemology, moral philosophy, philosophy of mind, and virtually every other area of philosophy.

Publications of mine that may be of particular relevance to the topic of God’s mercy on all include The Inescapable Love of God, 2nd Edition (2014), “Grace, Character Formation, and Predestination unto Glory” in Chapter 1 of Joel Buenting (ed.), The Problem of Hell: A Philosophical Anthology (2010), an entry on universalism in The Oxford Handbook of Eschatology (2007), and an entry entitled “Heaven and Hell in Christian Thought” in the online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
