I am associate professor in philosophy at the Central European University in Budapest (a unique and wonderful institution). My main research interest is consciousness, although I also have a sideline in political philosophy (taxation, globalisation, social justice). I recently finished my first book Consciousness and Fundamental Reality (published with Oxford University Press June 2017), and am now working on a book on consciousness aimed at a general audience. I have written for The Guardian and Philosophy Now, and blog at www.conscienceandconsciousness.com.
