Hugo Anthony Meynell

Hugo Anthony Meynell (born 23 March 1936), Meynell Langley, Derbyshire, England, is an English academic and author. Born half a year after the death of his father, Captain Godfrey Meynell, who was awarded the Victoria Cross for action against Afghan raiders in India's Khyber Pass,[1] Hugo grew up as a member of an English family which arrived in England with the Norman conquest of England.[2] He was educated at Eton, and King's College at the University of Cambridge where he obtained his PhD. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993,[3] and is listed in the Canadian Who's Who.[4]

Academic career

After completing his graduate work Dr. Meynell taught at the University of Leeds before moving to the University of Calgary in 1981. He has written thirteen academic books[5] and numerous peer reviewed articles as well as regular book reviews in the Heythrop Journal and similar publications.[6]

Christian Rationalism

Meynell describes himself as a "Christian Rationalist" in the tradition of Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) and Bernard Lonergan (1904–1984), on whose work he has written.[7] His numerous books include works on philosophy, psychology, and even music.[8] A devout Roman Catholic convert, he has an evangelical outlook and sympathy for British and American Protestantism. In his recent books he expresses a strong distaste for postmodernism and what he calls "academic fads".[9] Currently, he is engaged in a study of contemporary atheism.[10]
