I’m a philosopher and director of the publisher Urbanomic, which aims to engender interdisciplinary thinking and production.
As well as directing Urbanomic, I have written and spoken on art and philosophy and have also worked with a number of artists developing cross-disciplinary projects. I have also translated innumerable essays and various book-length works of French philosophy, including Alain Badiou’s Number and Numbers, François Laruelle’s The Concept of Non-Photography and Anti-Badiou, Quentin Meillassoux’s The Number and the Siren, and Éric Alliez’s The Brain-Eye.
My research interests are wide ranging, but generally emerge from the ‘gap’ between the scientific worldview and humans’ spontaneous experience and self-understanding, exploring the philosophical, aesthetic, and political ramifications of attempts to negotiate this disparity—in particular, new variants of ‘geophilosophy’, which examine the relationship between philosophical thought and the contingent history of the earth, in dialogue with geology, psychoanalysis, myth, and other hybrid modes of knowledge and narrative.
I’m available for editorial, proofreading, copy-editing, and translation (FR>EN) work, and commissions. Or you could just buy me a coffee.
