Anarchist leadership: needless vanity or intractable phenomenon? - slides

Slides from a talk I gave on the 28th June 2021 for Laidlaw scholars at the University of St Andrews about the paradoxes that anarchism and leadership present for one another. There is also an accompanying partial bibliography, with recommended further readings, in another post.

Tom Burdge

Founder, Researcher and Podcast Host,

I am the founder of where I currently host podcasts with expert guests in Buddhist philosophical practice and theory. With this project, I am to contribute toward correcting the entrenched Eurocentric bias in philosophy by creating an inclusive space for learning about Buddhist philosophy. As a Laidlaw Scholar, I have researched on researched philosophy of time, Buddhist philosophy, and philosophy of language. My research output includes a paper entitled Meaning in Gibberish (forthcoming in Aporia). I have presented this paper and discussed related issues in talks and workshops at the University of St Andrews and the University of Edinburgh. Language learning holds a high in priority in my studies and research. I have studied some Pali (OCBS levels 1 and 2) and I read French fluently. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any interest in the following: Buddhism, Buddhist philosophy, Ambedkar studies, women and Buddhist philosophy, cross-cultural philosophy, critical theory, French philosophy, Laruelle’s non-philosophy, non-Buddhism, philosophy of nonsense, philosophy of death.

This is great Tom! The minimalist slide design really draws attention to the words on the screen- impactful stuff.
