(Still editing my profile, it may not be up to date yet.) I’m a writer, researcher, digital activist and translator. I’m mostly focused on philosophy, aesthetics, internet culture, art, technology, future, digital and press freedom in Turkey, human rights and politics, and I’m writing science/speculative fiction. As a writer and researcher, I’m working between philosophy, science fiction, technology, politics and future. Or as I like to call, “weird and deadly interesting.” I’m writing theory, fiction and no-fiction both in English and Turkish. Also I’m still working on my Masters Thesis on Philosophy of Mind. As a journalist, I’m writing on diverse topics of interest including digital and human rights and freedom of speech in Turkey, technology and digital security, science fiction. You can check my byline below and selected writings at the Works section. As a digital activist, I’m working on digital security, privacy, censorship and surveillance, and copyright issues. I’m also giving trainings and talks on these topics for activists, journalists or anyone who wants in general. I’m working with many national and international organizations.
I am a philosopher at the University of Kassel, Germany. I work primarily in epistemology, philosophy of science and of mind. My research includes work on modern animal sciences, philosophy and pop culture and the role of plausibility in context of scientific knowledge.
I am a philosopher and arts writer. My research focuses on representation, modeling practices, classification and taxonomy, scientific images, and explanation in the mind/brain sciences. I also work on topics in the visual arts, especially depiction and the limits of pictorial representation, the genealogy of modernism, and the relationships between images and words.
