Dr Luke Armstrong
- Tutor (Politics)
Beginning teaching at the University of Glasgow in 2018, I have been a tutor here since 2021. I also completed a PhD in Politics at the University of Glasgow in 2021. Before this, I studied Art & Politics at Goldsmiths, University of London.
My research looks at matters relating to free will and autonomy within liberal political theory. I examine how the perspective we adopt on free will affects how we think about autonomy within politics, and how this might alter how we formulate other political concepts. A particular interest is how this affects an approach to the philosophy of education.
More broadly, I am interested in ongoing debates within analytical political theory, especially where these debates concern science, metaphysics, and religion.
