Philosophy in the Hopper

FWIW, I currently have two pieces in the hopper:

1. Distracted from Meaning: A Philosophy of Smartphones — a monograph, forthcoming with Bloomsbury Academic (2022).

2. “Performance, Technology, and the Good Life” — a chapter for The Oxford Handbook on the Phenomenology of Music (2022). This chapter draws upon Albert Borgmann’s philosophy of technology—specifically his concepts of focal practices and focal things—to make sense of the precariousness and meaningfulness of live musical performance.
