Paul G. Sturdee is a retired teacher of philosophy. He entered academia after a varied career in manufacturing industry, health care, and medical/technical sales; he has also worked in financial services. During the 1990s he taught on undergraduate and graduate courses at the University of Warwick in the UK, and was the Reviews Editor of Philosophy, Psychiatry & Psychology. His current interests range from the relationship between the idea of a moral framework and that of the sovereign individual, to wider cultural concerns about the impact of political ideologies on the moral relationship between individual and community, and the need for an ongoing public moral conversation including the contribution made by Christian theology and ethics in the development of the idea of the individual and the value-system unique to Western culture and civilization. He has no political or religious affiliations, and since the late 1990s has had no institutional affiliations. In addition to Public Discourse his work has appeared in publications such as Merion West, Quillette, and Quadrant.
