Steph Rennick

Steph is a lecturer in philosophy at Cardiff University, and founder of the Epicurean Cure. Her research interests span metaphysics, epistemology and intersectional feminism, but she’s best known for her work on time travel and foreknowledge.

Her latest project uses tropes from speculative fiction to shed light on our folk intuitions – i.e. our pre-theoretic, common sense answers to philosophical questions. Ultimately, she hopes this will lead not only to more fruitful conceptual mapping and analysis, but also result in new stories to read and games to play.

Steph drinks too much tea, reads a lot, plays J/RPGs and speaks with an Australian accent. Treasured possessions include three different copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, a well-travelled Buffy boxset, and a variety of teapots.
