Having completed my PhD in Philosophy, I finally have the time (and the need) to write on a broader range of subjects. If someone really wants to talk about Kripke and the the existence (or not) of meaning, I can. But for the most part, this blog will deal with my more varied ideas.
I’ve worked in a range of academic and administrative roles at The University of Newcastle (Australia) during my time there as a student. Most of my expertise is in the analytic side of philosophy and the provision of student services – particularly around degree program advice. But I constantly have opinions about politics, advertising, popular culture, the future, technology, and education. Having grown up on a farm, I often have something to say about agriculture and rural life too.
I’m also a passionate reader of science fiction – to the point of occasional obsession.
In case it isn’t obvious, my opinions do not reflect any official position of my current employer, The University of Newcastle.
