I'm a writer of fiction, nonfiction and children's books. Originally from the UK, I'm now often found elsewhere in the world. I'm interested in how philosophy can be used to enrich and deepen our lives and help us live more creatively. I have a particular interest in Chinese traditions of thought. My next book is Hello, Stranger: How to Welcome the World (Granta 2021). I have a PhD in philosophy and an MA in anthropology. You can find me online over at https://www.willbuckingham.com.
