I am Associate Professor in Philosophy at Central European University in Budapest (a unique and wonderful institution).

My main research focus is trying to explain how the brain produces consciousness. I think we need to radically rethink our understanding of matter in order to explain consciousness, in something like the way Einstein radically rethought the nature of space and time. I am also passionate about religion and politics. In terms of religion, I’m a kind of Christian fictionalist, seeing Christianity as a deeply political spiritual practice rather than a set of beliefs about the supernatural. Regarding politics, I am concerned with tax justice and the power of global capital.
