Pamela Sue Anderson

Pamela Sue Anderson is a philosopher who specialises in philosophy of religion, feminist philosophy and continental philosophy. In 2007 she was Official Fellow, Tutor in Philosophy and Christian Ethics, Dean, and Women's Advisor of Regent's Park College in the University of Oxford. Her former students include the late feminist philosopher Hanneke Canters.

She was educated at Yale University and Mansfield College, Oxford and was formerly Reader in Philosophy at the University of Sunderland.

Pamela is currently teaching at University of Oxford and currently working on In Dialogue with Michèle Le Doeuff, translated works of Le Doeuff.[1]

In Pamela's essay on postmodern theology she discusses how the view of postmodernism is causing issues in understanding religions, particularly Christianity. She tries to explain that using a post modernistic view, one is not really able to understand the different aspects that also belong to the religion this includes things like belief, practice, and rituals.

In 2009 Pamela received an honorary degree from the University of Lund in Sweden.[2]
