Institut Für Die Wissenschaften Vom Menschen

I am a post-doctoral researcher working primarily on phenomenology, existentialism and post-structuralism. My doctoral thesis, obtained from the Central European University, examined Martin Heidegger's early phenomenology, argued that it should be a read a productive form of philosophical anthropology and developed its account of anxiety and boredom to be able include experiences of revelatory joy. I have since published on deep disagreement, the philosophy of sport, and the philosophy and psychology of video games. I am editing a volume on the recent, influential genre of videogames known commonly as 'roguelites', forthcoming on CRC Press.
