It has gradually become clear to me what every great philosophy has hereto-fore been: a confession on the part of its author and a kind of involuntary and unconscious memoir.—Friedrich Nietzsche
Reflections and insights from the edge of Western civilization.
I’m a 28 year old graduate student with a background in philosophy. My primary areas of interest include 19th/20th century Germanic thought as well as the existentialists and their predecessors.
Most of the content that appears falls far below the rigors of formal academic writing. That is intentional. This site is merely a repository for my varied reflections and thoughts on a variety of topics and subjects. I may post more serious academic writing from time to time, whether on account of independent research or old essays/papers I’ve worked on. If people find the content interesting — fine. If not, that’s perfectly alright, too.
My main areas of interest include existentialism, phenomenology, literary theory, deconstruction, and historiography.
