Biography

Andrew Hines studied at both the University of Oregon and the University of Tübingen, obtaining a BA in Philosophy. He also holds a MA in Philosophy from University College Dublin and a PhD in Comparative Literature from Queen Mary, University of London. His thesis was on the concept of metaphor in European philosophy after Nietzsche and is being published as a book by the MHRA in 2020.

He is a specialist on Nietzsche, the history of metaphor theory, post-Kantian European philosophy, and has a growing interest in the relationship between German and Islamicate Philosophy. More broadly, he interested in how human beings understand (or mis-understand) each other and how the ideas and beliefs they use to communicate are formed. He is currently a Senior Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at SOAS University of London and a Contributing Editor for the Journal of the History of Ideas.
