Roland Faber, Ph.D. is Kilsby Family/John B. Cobb, Jr. Professor of Process Studies at Claremont School of Theology, and Professor of Religion at Claremont Graduate University. His fields of research and publication are Systematic Theology (Doctrine of God and Creation, Christology and Eschatology); Process Thought and Process Theology; Poststructuralism (Gilles Deleuze); Interreligious Discourse (epistemological conditions, ontology), especially regarding Christianity/Buddhism; Comparative Philosophy of Religion; Philosophy, Theology, Spirituality, and Cosmology of the Renaissance; Mysticism (Meister Eckhart, Nicolas of Cusa, Giordano Bruno); and integrated studies in Physics, Philosophy, and Psychology. His interests led him to formulate a “Theopoetics,” a “third space” approach, which by a critique of dualistic (or “holistic”) formulations of the relationship of Philosophy, Religion and Science, addresses the liberating necessity of multiplicity and diversity, combined with a post-colonial critique of “theopolitical” synergies of power. He is the author or editor of God as Poet of the World: Exploring Process Theologies; Beyond Metaphysics?: Explorations in Alfred North Whitehead's Late Thought; Event and Decision: Ontology and Politics in Badiou, Deleuze, and Whitehead; and Secrets of Becoming: Negotiating Whitehead, Deleuze, and Butler.
