My dream is to be a professor/researcher of philosophy - this is why I am head over heels on philosophy books and history of ideas. My primary interest is on early modern philosophy, 16th & 17th century science, philosophy and medicine. I am also interested in the ancient Greek philosophy, and would like to specialize in both areas. I am learning Latin for the moment as well as French. I love school, and this is why I want to do a PhD and be involved with academia, as I believe education is important.
I have written about on (d)evolution of pop-culture in Japan, Haitian zombies, and Ninja science.
My current undertakings -
- Alchemy and matter theory
- History and Philosophy of Witchcraft
- Medical Philosophy in Japan in the 17th century and before
- Philosophy of Japanese Folklore
- Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz and history and philosophy of science in Europe.
I'm also now growing plants. ;)
