Paul Daniels (Treasurer) has studied philosophy at the University of Melbourne, UNSW and Monash University, and is an Honorary Fellow of the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne. His research has focused on Nietzsche's early and late writings, Schopenhauer's critique of Kant, and Wittgenstein's early philosophy of language. More broadly, his interest lies with the intersections of art, language and the limits of philosophy. Paul has taught several MSCP courses: 'Reading Nietzsche's Zarathustra' (2005), 'An Introduction to Schopenhauer' (2007), 'Nietzsche and The Birth of Tragedy' (2008) and 'Meaning and Metaphor in Nietzsche and Wittgenstein' (2009). He also lectured at the 2009 Winter School course 'Kant's Critical Philosophy', which he convened. He has written on Kant's aesthetics and ethics, and is the author of Nietzsche and The Birth of Tragedy (Acumen, 2012). Paul was Convenor of the MSCP from 2007 - 2009.
Apart from philosophy, Paul enjoys playing piano, composing music, restoring furniture, and kicking back with the odd cigar.
