David Kalkman’s thesis Naturalistic Explanations of Religious Belief – And their Philosophical Implications, jointly supervised with Graham Oppy was awarded 2012 Faculty of Arts Best Masters Thesis Award and the 2012 Vice-Chancellor’s Commendation for Masters Thesis Excellence. David published a nice paper from the thesis.
