Nancey Murphy es una filósofa, teóloga estadounidense y profesora de Filosofía Cristiana en el Seminario Teológico Fuller en Pasadena, California, Estados Unidos. En 1973 obtuvo su BA en la Universidad Creighton (en filosofía y psicología), y en 1980 su Ph.D. de la Universidad de California, Berkeley (en filosofía de la ciencia), y en 1987 el Th.D. de la Unión de Graduados en Teología (en teología).

Carrera[editar]

Los trabajos de Murphy se han enfocado en el rol de la filosofía moderna y postmoderna en modelar la teología cristiana; en las relaciones entre la teología y la ciencia; y más recientemente ha trabajado en temas ligados a la filosofía de la mente y neurociencia. Su primer libro, Teología en la Era del Razonamiento Científico (Cornell, 1990) ganó el premio a la excelencia otorgado por la Academia Norteamericana de Religión. Es autora de nueve libros, incluidos Postmodernidad Anglo-Norteamericana: Perspectivas Filosóficas sobre Ciencia, Religión, y Ética (Westview, 1997); y Sobre la Naturaleza Moral del Universo: Teología, Cosmología, y Ética (con G.F.R Ellis, Fortress, 1996),[1]​ por este último recibió el Premio Templeton para el Progreso de la Religión. Sus libros más recientes son Cuerpos y Almas, o Cuerpos Espirituales? (Cambridge, 2006); y (escrito con Warren Brown) Es que mis Neuronas me hicieron obrar así? Perspectivas Filosóficas y Neurobiológicas sobre la Responsabilidad Moral y el Libre Albedrío (Oxford, 2007).[2]

Murphy ha coescrito once libros, incluidos (con L. Schultz y R.J. Russell, Brill 2009) Filosofía, Ciencia y Acción Divina; (con G.F.R. Ellis y T. O'Connor, Springer, 2009) Causalidad y la Neurobiología del Libre Albedrío, Springer; y (con William R. Stoeger, Oxford, 2007) Evolución y Emergencia: Sistemas, Organismos y Personas.[3][4]

Murphy es miembro del Directorio del Centro de Teología y Ciencias Naturales[5]​ (y expresidente del Directorio); de la Asociación Filosófica Norteamericana; y de la Sociedad de Filósofos Cristianos. Fue asesora del programa sobre diálogo entre la ciencia, ética, y religión de la Asociación Norteamericana para el Avance de la Ciencia, y se desempeña en los comités de planificación de una serie de conferencias sobre ciencia y acción divina y sobre el problema del mal natural bajo el auspicio del Observatorio Vaticano.

En 1998 Murphy fue designada la alumna del año de la Universidad Creighton, y en el 2006, alumna GTU del año. En el año 1999 fue J.K Russell Fellow en el Centro de Teología y Ciencias Naturales. Fue elegida miembro de la Sociedad Internacional para la Ciencia y la Religión y se desempeña en su comité de ejecutivo. En el 2007 fue incluida en la lista de las 100 personas más influyentes del Los Angeles Magazine. Es ministra ordenada de la Iglesia de los Hermanos.
