Andrew Basden - The Author of the Dooyeweerd Pages
The Dooyeweerd Pages are currently created and maintained by Dr. Andrew Basden. The main things about him relevant to the Dooyeweerd Pages are:
- He worked in various areas of information systems, with an interdisciplinary interest in the ontological, technical, human and social issues, and he found Dooyeweerd's philosophy is very appropriate to addressing such issues. Information systems is his work, at the Information Systems Institute, at the University of Salford, U.K.
- He is active in the U.K. Green Party, trying to understand and work towards environmental sustainability. He finds that Dooyeweerd's philosophy is very helpful in defining sustainability.
- He is a committed Christian of the evangelical persuasion, but not of the pietist persuasion. He agrees with a one-time student of Dooyeweerd that 'all life is religion', and he finds Dooyeweerd's philosophy helpful in understanding how this is the case. See his Christian Writings.
- He is a founder member (with Prof. Sytse Strijbos of the Free University of Amsterdam) of the Centre for Philosophy, Technology and Social Systems, which celebrates its tenth year of working in Dooyeweerdian philosophy and systems theory in 2004.
