Ross Inman has been named associate professor of philosophy at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, effective July 1.
SEBTS President Danny Akin noted that “God in His providence has brought … an outstanding young scholar to Southeastern Seminary and The College at Southeastern” to join “one of the finest philosophy and apologetics departments anywhere.”
Inman previously served at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as assistant professor of philosophy, chair of the philosophy department and coordinator of the school of theology’s philosophy and ethics division at the Fort Worth, Texas, campus. Inman previously held Templeton Research Fellowships at both the University of Notre Dame (2013-2014) and Saint Louis University (2014-2015).
Keith Whitfield, SEBTS acting provost, vice president for academic administration, dean of graduate studies and associate professor of theology, said, “In my first encounter with him, I was struck by how well he fits into our campus culture. Ross is one of the leading young evangelical philosophers who approaches his calling to teach and write with a pastoral disposition and a Great Commission heart.”
In 2018, Inman published his first book, “Substance and Fundamentality of the Familiar: A Neo-Aristotelian Mereology.” Among book chapters, articles and reviews he has written, his peer-reviewed “Omnipresence and the Location of the Immaterial” was awarded the 2014 Sanders Prize in Philosophy of Religion. His work has appeared in peer-reviewed publications such as Philosophical Studies, American Philosophical Quarterly and Metaphysica.
