Peter Capretto

Email: peter.capretto@Vanderbilt.Edu

Cohort: 2013

Excerpt:

Peter Capretto is a PhD student and fellow in Theology and Practice focusing in Religion, Psychology, and Culture. He holds an MTS from Vanderbilt Divinity School and a BA in philosophy and religious studies from Allegheny College. His research concerns the philosophical and psychological structures of subjectivity that inform human understandings of self, others, and God. He is particularly interested in how relational theory in theological anthropology, pastoral psychotherapy, and intersubjective psychoanalysis can benefit from resources in phenomenological theories of subjectivity and the continental philosophy of religion. His clinical work as a crisis counselor, hospice chaplain, and pastoral counselor has especially motivated him to locate theories of religious consciousness and identity shaped by cultural and lived experience.
