Dr. Jarrett’s disciplinary research is in the field of Christian ministry. In the process of writing his dissertation in which he examined the implications of postmodern philosophy on religious belief and practice, he rediscovered interest in philosophy and ethics. His philosophical research interests are in the philosophy of Alasdair MacIntyre, virtue theory, neuroethics—the study of brain processes involved in making moral decisions as well as the ethics of applying neuroscientific research, philosophy of science and philosophy of mind. Dr. Jarrett has presented several papers at conferences pertaining to these topics.
