Robert Seddon

I’ve been variously called provocative (editorially), a cynic (during a first date), and scary (by people clearly not too intimidated to tell me that, or at least tell my friends that), with a relish for oddball research questions (by a colleague in our postgrad. days). Though the appraisal I mostly hear is “You’re so tall.”

I’m an ethicist with particular interests in culture and heritage, and some technology along the way: from contested antiquities to outer space.

I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Durham, where I retain an Honorary Fellowship of the Department of Philosophy and membership of the Centre for the Ethics of Cultural Heritage.

For consultancy enquiries, feel free to contact me directly. Alternatively, I’m in the expert networks for Ethical Intelligence and Virtue Consultants; tell them I referred you.

I jostle for living space with my own library, and like to explore strange realms of the imaginary (hence the research strand in the philosophy of computer gaming). If I had a toolshed there would be words and concepts and ideas neatly hanging everywhere inside, and the view from within would show a long and winding garden path to the wild woods beyond.
