About Dr Thomas C Daffern

I am so excited that you have found my Patreon page and are interested in joining my community of blue-sky thinkers !  As a patron (fan) you will have access to exclusive information that I have not shared before which will include videos, audio blogs and Skype 1-1 sessions.

I have spent many years teaching global history, philosophy, political theory, comparative religious studies,theology, peace studies, global ethics, and comparative philosophy to adults, children and university students, and have an excellent overview of all aspects of these fields, including also the links between higher education and schools. I have worked at the University of London and Oxford and at senior level as a secondary school teacher in history, religious studies, citizenship, and philosophy.

I will be sharing on Patreon my core vision, experience, enthusiasm, expertise, and a profound and passionate commitment to educational research, history, philosophical, political and religious scholarship and lifelong learning – plus a wide life experience to help motivate and inspire colleagues and students alike. I am a highly effective educator and scholar who has travelled and researched widely and who brings a truly international perspective to my academic work, since I have travelled and lectured in some 35 countries and have received several international awards for my work in education. I have co-chaired 30 meetings in the House of Lords (mostly with the late Lord David Ennals) on ethics, peace and policy. I have also spoken twice at the United Nations HQ in New York on peace studies and University development.

I have exploited new media teaching avenues in full with film and audio classes outreach and am currently writing a tripartite historical commentary on the Qur’an, the New Testament and the Jewish bible to facilitate peacemaking in the Middle East. I have combined a lifetime of scholarship with peace activism and have coordinated International Philosophers and Historians for Peace and Global Responsibility for many years as well as running an Institute that specialises in peace research and the scientific study of comparative global philosophical traditions (International Institute of Peace Studies and Global Philosophy). Currently I am working on innumerable publications and academic projects which I will be sharing here on Patreon.

When the first 100 patrons subscribe to this page, I will be holding a garden party here at the Institute in France and inviting the most keen subscribers to attend. Everyone attending will get a significant present to take home. We will also shoot film footage and make it generally available to all patrons of the event, so that even if they cannot come in person, they can watch vicariously. As part of the event I will give a key note talk that will be filmed and also put on the site.
