Dr. Jonathan Keir studied philosophy and comparative literature at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. He then took up doctoral studies in the humanities under the EU’s Erasmus Mundus programme.
After completing his doctoral thesis entitled “Warriors for Civilisation: Naguib Mahfouz, Andrei Tarkovsky, Tu Weiming and their Western Counterparts”, Dr Keir came to the Global Ethic Institute in 2014 to continue his research. He is currently investigating the possibility of combining Hans Kueng’s Global Ethic Project with Confucian and Islamic models of intercultural dialogue under the banner of an “Ethics for All”.
At the Global Ethic Institute, Dr. Keir teaches on the role of the global humanities in expanding the Global Ethic Agenda.
