Bruce Wearne is a doctoral graduate from LaTrobe University (1985), having also gained qualifications from Monash University (B.A. 1969-1971) and the University of Waikato, New Zealand (M.SocSc 1978). His scientific specialty is sociology and he has served as a lecturer in that discipline at Chisholm Institute of Technology and Monash University (1982-1998).
From 1999 he has lived and worked from Point Lonsdale, Victoria, Australia. Having recently published essays on two major sociologists of the 20th century - Peter Berger and Talcott Parsons - he continues to work on various projects.
He also walks a lot along the coast near his home since this stimulates his reflection of many things including his ongoing conversation with theoretical sociology. He is also involved as a volunteer in a local aged-care facility. With the decisive shift around the world making English the preferred language for global communication he also assists scholars and others in the editing of research reports, as well the translation and publication of vital documents and books.
He is also active in developing public policy on many contentious political issues that give expression to a “Christian political option.” He is married to Valerie, a social policy researcher, and has two grown up sons.
