Luis de Miranda, PhD, is a philosopher, intellectual historian, counsellor, and an international author of fiction and non-fiction. His books, chief among them Who Killed the Poet?, have been translated or are being translated in several countries. He is since August 2018 a researcher at Örebro University, Sweden.
Paris (France) has published his first books (for example L’Art d’être libres au temps des automates). Shortly after his essay Is a New Life Possible? was published in English in 2013, he was offered a prestigious research scholarship and in November 2017 became a Doctor of Philosophy at The University of Edinburgh. His PhD thesis is a philosophical intellectual history of esprit de corps. In Edinburgh, Luis de Miranda also conducted interdisciplinary research in AI-Humanities, anthrobotics and the philosophy of technology, and initiated the CRAG research group on “creation of reality”, through which he organised international conferences and workshops. Luis also has a Master of Philosophy from the Sorbonne University and graduated from HEC-Paris in Economics.
Even before his proposal of the cosmological concept of Creal in 2008, Luis de Miranda has been interested in process-oriented philosophies (Heraclitus, Hegel, Bergson, Deleuze, Whitehead…) and in the intellectual history of the concept of creation. Between 2009 and 2012, Luis supervised the CRÉEL research and publishing bureau (Centre de Recherche pour l’Émergence d’une Existence Libre), through which he led the collective “crealist” movement, philosophical and societal debates, happenings, and book publications.
Luis de Miranda is the founder of The Philosophical Parlour in Stockholm, where, in collaboration with Livslinjen Institute, he offers occasional philosophical counselling. Since 2018, he is a certified practicing member and member of the board of the Swedish Society for Philosophical Practice (SSFP).
