My name is Bobby. I am a super nerd in 20th century continental philosophy, particularly in Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction. My research interests lies in the areas of ontology, hermeneutics, psychoanalysis and phenomenology. I enjoy photography, art, film, music, literature, and disc golf. I have a Bachelor of Design degree from the Alberta University of Arts where I received the Board of Governor’s Graduating Student Award. In 2020, I earned a Master of Arts degree from the University of Calgary where I wrote about deconstruction, psychoanalysis, and speculative realism. My PhD endeavor is currently on hiatus because I don’t know if it is worth my time.
I am really introverted, cerebral, committed, passionate, and intense. I am someone who appears cold on the outside, but really soft inside. I can be social, but also really quiet. My mind have a tendency to drift away wondering about the depths of human nature, forecasting future possibilities, and connecting random pieces of knowledge that I observe and gather from the world. If you are one of the few people who knows me well, you will discover that I am really laid back and easygoing who is super goofy with a sarcastic, dry, and dark sense of humor. I am a collector of knowledge about everything I come across. I enjoy learning, growing, and improving frameworks of groundbreaking ideas which shapes and enriches my personal life. I feel most alive when I am doing something that is much bigger than myself.
I often try to write about philosophy in ways that are easy for newcomers to comprehend. Not only is this blog a place where you will engage with some of my current intellectual musings, it also represents many dimensions of who I am as a person. Every thought, love, joy, sorrow, anything that can animate my existence are inscribed on this blog, tucked between each written word. I am a big picture thinker who is about the perspective of perspectives, psychology of psychologies, truth of truths, and the philosophy of philosophies.
Exist with purpose and with infinite respect for others. 🙂
