Luis de Miranda, PhD, is a philosopher 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.
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 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 creative concept of Creal in 2008, Luis de Miranda has been interested in process-oriented philosophies (Heraclitus, Hegel, Bergson, Deleuze, Whitehead…) and in the philosophical 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 organised the collective “crealist” movement, philosophical and societal debates, happenings, and book publications.
Luis de Miranda is the founder of The Philosophical Parlour in Stockholm (2018), where, in collaboration with Livslinjen Institute, he works as a philosophical counsellor. Both a practitioner and a theorist, he is slowly developing his own process-oriented holistic and practical model: crealectics. Since 2018, he is a certified practicing member and member of the board of the Swedish Society for Philosophical Practice (SSFP).
