I’m currently undertaking my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Newcastle, Australia, focusing in the area of Saul Kripke’s Meaning Scepticism and how we might find a more satisfactory formulation of a solution. As well as Philosophy of Language I have a keen interest in Philosophies of Mind and Religion as well as Metaphysics, Ethics, Politics & Power.
My other (semi-professional or less) interests include: Science Fiction literature, and the phenomenology of psychoactive use in contemporary religious (or religious-like) settings. I think it is right to challenge peoples beliefs, and this sometimes annoys them, and I confess (take that Foucault) that I’m not always particularly sorry.
I might also add that I don’t necessarily endorse the views of the sites or blogs that I link to, in fact I vehemently disagree with many of them.
On the recent ISP filtering proposal: The day that this blog is blocked is the day that I seriously consider leaving Australia and never coming back. Either that or I’ll enter politics and fix the mess myself.
