About me

Gender MALE
Introduction I studied ancient history and ancient languages at University College London, and at SOAS. I specialised in the neo-Assyrian Empire, and the ancient Near East. I'm the author of three books: one is the revolutionary study 'The Sacred History of Being', some chapters of which can be found here. The second is 'J.G. Frazer and the Platonic Theory of Being', which explores Frazer's engagement with Plato, and how that engagement impacted the writing of 'The Golden Bough'. The third, a collection of essays, was published in August 2017 and has the title 'Understanding Ancient Thought'. I tweet regularly on ancient history and philosophy, with the Twitter ID @rotorvator. My books are available from Itunes, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Inktera, Blio, Smashwords, and other retailers. 'The Sacred History of Being' and 'Understanding Ancient Thought' are currently Smashwords bestsellers in both Philosophy and History (August 2017).
