Meaning Maps

Drawing on a range of philosophical traditions, I study the making of meaning– including the logics, motions, and geometries of conceptual and material reality from the human point of view. Yes, we construct a lot of our meaning. But once constructed, meaning structures take on lives of their own–with all sorts of tacit and overt implications.

I begin with a political inquiry into “spiral logics” and a personal-meets-professional-meets-political inquiry into the “geometry of gaslighting.”
