Passionate about consciousness
I am Associate Professor in Philosophy at Central European University in Budapest (a unique and wonderful institution).
My main research focus is trying to explain how the brain produces consciousness. I think we need to radically rethink our understanding of matter in order to explain consciousness, in something like the way Einstein radically rethought the nature of space and time.
My first book 'Consciousness and Fundamental Reality' has just been published by Oxford University Press, available for a brief period at a discount here.
I also have a sideline in political philosophy, focusing on issues pertaining to taxation, globalisation and social justice.
Having published a lot of stuff for specialists, my priority now it try to communicate with a broader audience. My blog (linked to below) is aimed at a general audience and I am currently working on a book aimed at a general audience.
This is what I used to do in my 20s before I started losing my hair...
