PhD in Social Anthropology, The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS)

My thesis develops analytical tools to explore the interaction of the social and the psychological that defines our decisions, actions and life-courses. Critically approaching both modernist and post-modernist epistemes, it suggests humanistic ways towards the synthesis stage in social sciences, self-reflexive social agency as an art d’existence, and a non-Cartesian cross-disciplinary research model. It proposes a fundamentally different way to account for social change and cultural diversity.
