I am writing a book about the life of French philosopher Henri Bergson for Basic Books. Before that, I wrote a PhD thesis on the links between his philosophy and early 20th-century biology. In my research, I am always coming across fascinating stories, figures and ideas which don’t quite fit in my various projects but are nonetheless incredibly interesting. I always put them aside hoping I will find a home for them. I have decided this newsletter could be just that. A place for me to share my interesting finds which otherwise would sit collecting digital dust in a poorly organised file on my computer.
I will also keep you updated about my various writing projects and where to find them.
