I’ve been writing professionally since about 2006. My main educational background is in philosophy, which I’ve studied at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and have taught, examined and written about for students and the general reader. From 2000 until 2016 I ran the website Philosophy Online, to support fellow teachers, students and those new to philosophy.
I’ve written seven books to date (with more on the way):
- Philosophy in 100 Quotes (forthcoming, Quid, 2018)
- What Would Marx Do? (Cassell, 2018)
- 50 Philosophy of Science Ideas You Really Need to Know (Quercus, 2013)
- Philosophy: Key Texts (2nd Ed) (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) – with Julian Baggini
- Philosophy: Key Themes (2nd Ed) (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) – with Julian Baggini
- Words of Wisdom (Quercus, 2011)
- A Beginner’s Guide to Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008)
- A Beginner’s Guide to Descartes’s Meditations (Wiley-Blackwell, 2007)
I have also published various articles on a range of topics.
