MICK BABCOCK

L4E PHD FELLOW    -    CONCEPTUAL PHILOSOPHY    -    MCGILL UNIVERSITY

Contact: michael.babcock@mail.mcgill.ca

Mick has a BA in Political Economy and an MA in Liberal Arts. While completing his undergraduate degree he managed stays in several different countries, including Austria, Argentina and Mexico, and as a result he slowly came to resemble a peripatetic peripatetic. This trajectory continued up to and after his graduation as he spent several years travelling to and doing systems research in Indigenous communities in Borneo and in the Peruvian Amazon. He then moved to Vancouver to complete his Graduate Studies. His research is focused on the analysis-of and interaction-among conceptual thought systems, and while at McGill he will work on creating an analytical framework that could be used, among other things, to invert post-modern anti-foundationalist philosophical narratives in light of the emergence of the Anthropocene. Aside from all of this he maintains that he is an affable chap and indeed even pleasant to converse with.
