I work for the Royal Institute of Philosophy, and I’m editor of The Philosophers’ Magazine, an independent quarterly devoted to rigorous, readable philosophy. I have a PhD in philosophy from University College London.
I’m author of The Great Philosophers and The Story of Philosophy: A History of Western Thought (both with Jeremy Stangroom), The Twenty Greatest Philosophy Books, and The Ethics of Climate Change. I’m editor of The Continuum Companion to the Philosophy of Mind and co-editor of the Think Now series of books on social and political philosophy. My books have been translated into Portuguese, Korean, Russian, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian, Italian and Persian. I’ve published papers in academic journals, and I sometimes write for a few newspapers like the Guardian and the Times Higher.
I am actually doing all these things right now. I never rest.
