I am a philosopher trained in both the analytic and the Continental traditions. In my view the distinction carries no normative weight. There is good and bad philosophy in both traditions and there are lessons to be learned from each. I completed my MA in Philosophy, History and Sociology at the University of Leipzig, Germany, with a thesis on Frege and Husserl on sense and meaning, before undertaking a doctorate (DPhil) on the semantics of descriptive singular terms at the University of Oxford, completed in 2006.
