Here are a bunch of essays I wrote for my MA in Continental Philosophy at Warwick, including my dissertation. They are all rather imperfect, and I’ve changed my mind on a number of things since I wrote them, but there’s still plenty worthwhile here, some of which may eventually be turned into actual publications.
Essay on Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit – ‘In What Sense is Consciousness its own Criterion?’ (PDF, PDF biblio)
Essay on Hegel’s Science of Logic – ‘The Role of the Form/Content Distinction in Hegel’s Science of Logic‘ (PDF, PDF biblio)
Essay on Levinas’ ‘Meaning and Sense’ – ‘Ethics and Sense’ (PDF, PDF biblio)
Joint Essay on Foucault’s ethics and Kant’s teleology – ‘Foucault’s Technologies of the Self: A Kantian Project?’ (PDF, PDF biblio)
Dissertation on Deleuze’s metaphysics – ‘Time and Nonsense’ (PDF, PDF biblio)
Here is a fragment of an essay on Kant and Lyotard and the musical sublime that I wrote as an undergraduate, the complete version of which has been unfortunately lost. There’s still some decent explication of their respective positions in here though.
‘Can Lyotard’s Characterisation of the Time of the Sublime Experience Allow for a Musical Sublime?’ (PDF)
