Dr Thomas Clough Daffern

Dr. Thomas Clough Daffern is a philosopher, historian, poet, author, lecturer, musician, thinker, educator, consultant, philologist, bibliophile, Druid-Christian, and peace studies specialist. His academic background includes degrees in European and world history (with political philosophy) and a long period of intense personal study in philosophy, religion and the history of ideas – together with over 30 years teaching experience in the same fields. He has also trained and practised in conflict management within communities and schools, specialising in multifaith and multicultural mediation. He was awarded his PhD from the University of London for a thesis which explores the history of the search for peace from 1945-2001 and which proposes a new field of historiography, Transpersonal History, as the best way to establish a rigorous discourse on peace among rival and contending spiritual and intellectual traditions, currently battling for hegemony on the planet. He runs the Commonwealth Interfaith Network. He is Director of the International Institute of Peace Studies and Global Philosophy (IIPSGP) which works across many academic fields to bring together all those with an interest in and a commitment towards the study of peace, nonviolence and philosophy applied to the resolution of the problems and tensions of today's world. IIPSGP arose out of a feasibility study which Thomas undertook for the University of London. His details are on
