Mr Nikos A. Mylonas
From September 2010 until February 2015 I studied Psychology (BSc) in the University of Crete, Greece (9,24/10). My undergraduate dissertation attempted a critique of the Foucauldian theory of power focusing on the question of the subject. A few months later I started a MA in Social and Political Theory (Distinction) in University of Birmingham, UK which was completed with a dissertation on the ideas of Bernard Stiegler. From 2017 September I began my PhD research project under the supervision of Dr Gerald Moore. Before that I used to work as a psychosocial support aid worker in a Greek refugee camp.
My current project is devoted to the investigation of an ecophilosophical understanding of addiction that draws from the work of Bernard Stiegler, Georges Canguilhem, Gilles Deleuze/Felix Guattari, and neuroscientific research on topics such as will, desire and visceral feelings. In parallel I'm interested in alternative treatments of addiction using the framework established by L.S Vygotsky and the projects that involve drama studies and applied theatre.
