SAMUEL MICHAELIDES gained a BA (Hons) degree in English Literature from De Montfort University, Leicester in 2002. After his degree he worked as a press officer for the British Government.
In 2005, he enrolled for the Pathways Philosophy of Mind program and in October of that year applied for a graduate place at the University of Reading, gaining an MA in Philosophy in 2006 and being offered a PhD place.
Before taking up the place he decided to seek adventure and is still lost somewhere on his way back. He has, however, managed to keep his studies going along the way and now wants to give back to the Pathways programme which kick started his philosophical career.
He specialises in Philosophy of Mind with particular interest in Higher Order theories of consciousness.
His ISFP Fellowship dissertation, 'Mary and the Philosophical Goose Chase: Physicalism and the Knowledge Argument' can be found on the Pathways Essays page.
