Anthony J. Gavin
Anthony J. Gavin holds a master's degree from the philosophy program at Concordia University, where he specialized in the philosophy of science, epistemology, metaphysics, and issues of social justice. His work has also extended to phenomenology, existentialism, Marxism and cultural and political theory, seeking to work between the boundaries of existing rigid paradigms in philosophy, as well as outside of the academy in left activist organizations. Having grown up in Victoria, the cultural capital for Canadian poets, Anthony can be found writing (mostly philosophical) poetry - shared erratically - when not working on (mostly poetical) philosophy: "Admittedly, my philosophical writing often departs on poetic intuitions." When without a pencil in hand, Anthony enjoys drinking coffee, smoking, camping, and playing with his much beloved cat, Eddie.
