Hi. My name is Warren Ward.
I am a writer, psychiatrist and psychotherapist with a longstanding interest in European philosophy, literature and history. On this blog you will find posts about two of my greatest passions: the history of ideas in modern Europe and the craft of writing.
My first novel-length work, Lovers of Philosophy, is about the love lives of seven continental philosophers: Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, Foucault and Derrida.
The manuscript for Lovers of Philosophy has been shortlisted for the 2014 Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship, the 2014 QWC/Hachette Australia Manuscript Development Program and the 2015 ACT Writers Centre HARDCOPY writers development program funded by the Australia Council. It was also a Highly Commended entry for the 2016 Varuna Residential Fellowship.
My award-winning essay 50,000 at a funeral, about the legacy of Jean-Paul Sartre, can be found in the May 2016 issue of New Philosopher.
