My name is Maks Sipowicz. I’m a writer living and working in Naarm, on the land of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. I’m educated as a philosopher, and I hold a PhD from Monash University. Though I am no longer an academic, I still continue some of my research interests, particularly at the intersection of the history of philosophy and political philosophy. I write primarily short fiction and literary criticism, and I have a growing interest and practice in writing philosophical essays for a wider audience.
Philosophy After Dark has been many things since I first started the blog. At one point I had the aspiration to turn it into a magazine, but now it is very much a place for me to share my writing and ideas. Occasionally, I have featured guest posts by my friends.
