John Mullarkey

Educated at University College, Dublin, University College, London, and the University of Warwick, John Mullarkey has taught philosophy for the last 16 years at the University of Sunderland, England (1994-2004), and the University of Dundee, Scotland (2004 to date). He has published Bergson and Philosophy (1999), Post-Continental Philosophy: An Outline (2006), Refractions of Reality: Philosophy and the Moving Image (2009), and edited, with Beth Lord, The Continuum Companion to Continental Philosophy (2009).
His work - inspired by Bergson, Deleuze, and Laruelle - seeks new ways of engaging with 'non-philosophy' in the belief that philosophy is a subject that gains its identity through continual challenge from outsider thought, such as in film, design, and animality (the three non-philosophies with which he is most acquainted).
