About Luis de Miranda
Dr Luis de Miranda is a philosopher, intellectual historian, and an international author of fiction and non-fiction. His books have been translated or are being translated in several languages; for example his essay Being and Neonness will be published by MIT Press in 2019. He works currently at the intersection of the humanities and artificial intelligence on anticipatory systems and the concept of anticipation. At Örebro University, he has initiated the CREA network together with AI and robotics specialist Professor Alessandro Saffiotti (Cross-disciplinary Research on Effectual Anticipation).
Paris (France) has published his first books (for example L'Art d'être libres au temps des automates). Shortly after his essay Is a New Life Possible? was published in English in 2013, he was offered a research scholarship by The University of Edinburgh and in November 2017 became a Doctor of Philosophy. His PhD thesis is a philosophical history of the idea of esprit de corps. In Edinburgh, Luis de Miranda also conducted interdisciplinary research in AI-Humanities, anthrobotics and the philosophy of technology, and initiated the CRAG research group on "creation of reality", through which he organised international conferences and workshops. Luis also has a Master of Philosophy from the Sorbonne University and graduated from HEC-Paris in Economics.
Even before his proposal of the cosmological concept of Creal in 2008, Luis de Miranda had been interested in process-oriented philosophies (Heraclitus, Hegel, Bergson, Deleuze, Whitehead) and in the intellectual history of the concept of creation. In the long term, he is working on a theory of world-and self-realization, an anticipatory model he calls crealectics.
Luis de Miranda is the founder of The Philosophical Parlour in Stockholm, currently located by the Castle in Gamla Stan (Slottsbacken 8), where he offers occasional philosophical counselling on individual destiny anticipations which informs his research empirically. He is a certified practicing member and member of the board of the Swedish Society for Philosophical Practice (SSFP).
