Fintan Neylan earned his BA and MA at University College Dublin. His master’s thesis focused on the work of Martin Heidegger, which presented a reconstructed reading of the philosopher’s entire corpus along the axes of a few key concepts. His current focus lies in speculative and realist impulses within the history of continental philosophy and their relation with the sciences.
He has given presentations at a number of international conferences and has published on aesthetics, media studies, and most recently on the writings of Quentin Meillassoux. His research interests include phenomenology, post-war French philosophy, the naturalism of Wilfrid Sellars, and contemporary speculative philosophy.
