Joshua Bergamin

Joshua Bergamin is reading for a PhD in the Department of Philosophy at Durham University. His dissertation explores the relationship between language and perceptual consciousness, drawing deeply upon the work of Martin Heidegger. His broader academic interests stretch from mythology and religious experience, to economic ethics, to literary criticism, and much in between.

Joshua's formal education consists of an MA from the University of Queensland and a BA from the University of South Australia, supplemented by many informal lessons from the long highways of four continents.

Thesis Title: In the Beginning was the Word: Concepts, Perception, and Human Being
