Thomas Moynihan

Thomas Moynihan’s PhD at the University of Oxford focused on intellectual history and existential risk, aiming to supply a historically reflective dimension to the emerging field of ‘future studies’, and elucidating the latter's place within the wider history of ideas and the longest-range dynamics of philosophical and cultural modernity. His interests include the structure of anticipation, the semantics of futurological time, our chronosthetic endowment, and the riddle ‘What is Enlightenment?’
