Alain Guillemain; Philosopher

researcher of affect & discursivity – philosophical musings and scratchings


Tantalise your mind with philosophical engagements across the visual arts, literature, wine, theatre, cinema and more…

I am trained as a Philosopher, currently completing my PhD in affect and discursivity at Deakin University, Australia.

My path to philosophy is somewhat unorthodox. Even though I am academically trained, the pursuit of philosophy for me is about exploring the intricacies of our experiences in life.

To that end, I pore over books, watch films, sip wine, muse over plays, and engage with artists, in the hope that I may turn out some scratchings that may be of value to my fellow humans.

I hold the view that philosophy is about more than specialisation and extends far beyond self-help, as argued here.
