NON-ACADEMIC PHILOSOPHY or Deleuze and Zombies

The question is ever more frequently asked “Can philosophy exist outside the academy?” It is asked sometimes sincerely, sometimes disingenuously. Yet these “non-academic”, or perhaps it is better to say “non-institutionally based”, philosophers already exist and are able to flourish and to engage in fruitful dialogue thanks to their creative online presence. These thinkers are pioneering a form of philosophically lived digitality, rather than simply philosophising about the digital.

Here is my comment on the problem, with a brief list of such philosophers, including John David Ebert, Bharath Vallabha, Daniel Coffeen, and Timothy Rayner.


I would especially recommend:


LIFE CHANGING: A PHILOSOPHICAL GUIDE   (2nd Edition) by Timothy Rayner

READING THE WAY OF THINGS: Towards a New Technology of Making Sense (forthcoming) by Daniel Coffeen

IN SEARCH OF AN IDEAL blog by Bharath Vallabha
