Luis de Miranda, PhD, is an international author and philosophical practitioner. His texts, chief among them Who Killed the Poet?, have been translated or are currently being translated in several countries (USA, China, India, Sweden, Italy, South-Korea, Greece…).
Paris (France) has published his first books (essays or fiction – 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 2017 became a Doctor of Philosophy at The University of Edinburgh. His PhD thesis is a philosophical history of the concept of esprit de corps (see also video below for a 3 min synthesis). 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.
Since his proposal of the concept of Creal in 2008, Luis de Miranda has been interested in the philosophical history of the concept of creation (in particular continuous creation) and in cosmologies of well-belonging. Between 2009 and 2012, Luis was the president of the CRÉEL research center in Paris (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, who speaks English, French, Portuguese and Swedish, is the founder of The Philosophical Parlour in Stockholm (2018): he holds private consultations as a philosophical and creative inspirer, in collaboration with Livslinjen Institute. Since February 2018, he is a member of the board of the Swedish Society for Philosophical Practice (SSFP – Svenska Sällskapet for Filosofisk Praxis).
