My name is Alex Erler and I’m a philosopher. I’m currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Anatolia College/ACT in Thessaloniki, where I work on a project on the social and ethical implications of “Digital Do-It-Yourself” technologies. I did my doctorate at the University of Oxford, UK, on the topic of human enhancement and the so-called objection from authenticity. You can find my personal academic page here.
I am interested in figuring out, through the use of reason, how we can make the world a better place, if necessary challenging some received ideas in the process. This blog offers my (fresh?) perspective on a number of topics that I regard as significant, as well as the occasional fun trivia. Constructive comments welcome.
