About

I am an Englishman with an interest in philosophy, literature, politics and the culture of the internet. I write about the philosophical topics which concern me most, in the order in which they occur to me. I belong to several different worlds philosophically, having been formally educated in Anglo-American analytic philosophy; ‘Continental’ philosophy including psychoanalysis and Marxism; and Indian philosophy from the Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika and Madhyamaka schools. I promise the reader that the mutual distrust and dismissal which exists between these different traditions is mostly nothing more than prejudice. All have something to contribute, however small.

When I’m not writing here my hobbies include scratching my nose, impromptu travel and getting blind drunk.
