The posts below provide a good overview of Phase 1. They were written over a long period, as my opinions (and my terminology) were changing and stabilising. I can’t flag all of these changes, so all I can ask is that readers approach them with an amount of exegetical charity. If you find apparent inconsistencies between things I’ve written, you should generally favour the newer piece.
These posts go a good way to articulating my approach towards normativity and its importance in my work.
Rational Animals? (on Speculative Heresy)
These two posts provide some interesting background to my more programmatic concerns with the history of philosophy.
These two posts put forward some more of my in depth theoretical concerns with regard to ontology, metaphysics, and their relation to science. I will point out that since ‘The Question of Being’, I’ve started using the term ‘metaphysics’ and ‘ontology’ in the opposite way. For my considered opinion on the matter, take a look at my Essay on Transcendental Realism.
These posts on Deleuze seem to be popular, so they can go here too.
The Plane of Immanence (not just on Deleuze, but relevant)
Here are some more programmatic posts on the state of academic philosophy and academia more generally.
