Thomas Wren is Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago. His doctorate in philosophy is from Northwestern University, and he has masters degrees in English literature and in education as well as in philosophy. He has taught at Loyola since 1966, and has been a visiting professor in California and elsewhere, as well as a faculty member at Loyola University's Rome Center of Liberal Arts on several occasions.

His areas of special research interest are ethics, moral psychology, and the philosophy of education; recently, he has also become interested in the philosophy of literature, especially the moral dimension (broadly speaking) of literature. He has published numerous articles on these and related topics such as the philosophy of history and cross-cultural understanding. He has also written and edited several books, including Caring About Morality (Routledge and MIT Press, 1991), Promise-Giving and Treaty-Making (with P. Karavites; Brill, 1992), The Moral Self  (MIT, 1993), The Moral Domain (MIT, 1990), Philosophy of Development (3 Vols.) (with W. van Haaften and M. Korthals; Kluwer), Moral Sensibilities and Education (with W. van Haaften and A. Tellings; Concord, 1998-2007), Moral Obligations: Action, Intention, and Valuation (Transaction, 2010), and Conceptions of Culture (Rowman and Littlefield, 2012). He is currently writing a book about social construction theory.

Professor Wren has served on various departmental and university committees at Loyola and is Vice-President of the Board of Trustees of Global Alliance for Africa and former Vice-President of the Association for the Philosophy of Education.
