My Philosophy

Meaningful societal and political change begins with the radical deepening of our own self-consciousness. Our thought-patterns, habits, and emotions, given that they often go unacknowledged and unattended to, present us with our most formidable existential challenges — both personal and social. It is my belief that education (in all of its various forms: media, formal, political, societal, experiential) if it is healthy, is that process by which we disclose and elucidate what so often besets us: our biases, assumptions, prejudices, and traumas. Novelty and innovation, in all sectors of our modern democratic society, are only possible if we collectively develop emotionally and intellectually mature responses to our interpersonal tensions, issues, and predicaments. My work, in its various manifestations, is directed towards reducing the barriers that impede this necessary self-work, and, while doing so, ameliorate the institutions that are entrusted with safeguarding the maturation of the modern individual.
