I encountered philosophy early on, as a mouldy copy of Aristotle's On memory and reminiscence, which I found intriguing. My formal philosophical education took place much later at the University of Essex and at the Institut Catholique in Paris. My interests were decisively shaped by my encounter with classical German philosophy, Kant and Hegel in particular. I was awarded a PhD from the University of Essex for a thesis on the relation between transcendental and absolute idealism. My current research is on moral, metaphysical and psychological issues concerning agency.
