This is where I keep drafts of papers that I’m happy to put out for public consumption, but which aren’t necessarily complete and ready for publication, amongst other things. It’s important to remember that these are generally drafts, and that they aren’t fully polished. That being said, comments and constructive criticism are welcomed. I’m now putting most things up on academia.edu, so do check out what I’ve got on there, as there might be additional stuff not present here.

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.

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.
