Philosophy tuition

I have a PhD in Philosophy from Cardiff University and have taught the subject at undergraduate level. I'm a full member of the British Philosophical Association and the Institute of Philosophy and am a director of Big Ideas Initiatives, an organisation that brings philosophical discussion into public places.

I'm familiar with the A level syllabi for Philosophy and for Critical Thinking. I'm also more than happy to discuss philosophy tuition for self-improvement or leisure, as I believe this can be an extremely rewarding field to experiment with and, with the right introduction, it can be accessible to anyone.

I am particularly interested in the following areas:

  • Socrates, Plato and Aristotle
  • Seventeenth century rationalism and empiricism (Descartes, Spinoza, Hume, Leibniz)
  • Early modern political thought (Grotius, Hobbes, Locke)
  • Eighteenth century transcendentalism and idealism (Kant, Hegel)
  • Phenomenology and existentialism (Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre)
  • Nineteenth century scepticism and nihilism (Schopenhauer, Nietzsche)
  • Marx and the Marxist tradition (Marx, Gramsci, the Frankfurt School, Althusser, Habermas)
  • Logicism and the philosophy of mathematics (Frege, Russell, early Wittgenstein)
  • Analytical philosophy of language (later Wittgenstein, Kripke, Putnam)
  • Pragmatism and neopragmatism (Dewey, James, Rorty)
  • Postmodernism and poststructuralism (Derrida, Levinas)
