Michelle Panchuk BA, Intercultural Studies, Columbia International University, 2004 MA, Philosophy, University of South Carolina, 2012 My dissertation is on the relationship between the God of classical theism and universals construed abstractly. I argue that divine concepts can do all of the work for which metaphysicians posit abstract universals and that such a theory is consistent with the doctrine of divine simplicity. I am also interested in medieval understandings of the relationship between God and the problem of universals and in neo-platonism in 19th century Russian philosophy, especially the work of Vladimir Solovyov.
