Dr. Philip Mills
University of Lausanne
After finishing his PhD on Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, and poetics at Royal Holloway, University of London, Philip Mills is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, within a research group on lyric poetry. Rooted in 19th and 20th century philosophical thought, his research lies at the intersection of philosophy of language and aesthetics. His work investigates how poetry affects language and, through language, our forms of life and our ways of being in the world.
