Hi! I’m Andrew Hirst. I was one of two PhD students working on the AHRC project “Method in Philosophical Aesthetics: The challenge from the sciences” (website). I completed my PhD in 2013. I’m primarily interested in the intersections between cognitive science, evolutionary theory, philosophy and anthropology, and how combining insights from across these disciplines can help us better understand the human mind.
After completing my PhD I worked in the Civil Service for a few years, before deciding to pack it all in and develop a video game and focus on my writing.
