Warren Ward is a writer, psychiatrist and psychotherapist with longstanding interests in European philosophy, literature and history.

His first novel-length work, Lovers of Philosophy, explores the love lives of seven continental philosophers: Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Beauvoir, Foucault and Derrida.

The manuscript for Lovers of Philosophy was shortlisted for the 2014 Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship, the 2014 QWC/Hachette Australia Manuscript Development Program and the 2015 HARDCOPY Professional Development Program for Emerging Writers.

In 2016 he was selected to attend the Yale Writers Conference, and won a New Philosopher Writers’ Award for his essay, 50,000 at a Funeral, about the legacy of Jean-Paul Sartre.

In 2017 he was one of twelve writers from around the globe selected for an ‘Enter Text’ residency at the Arteles Creative Centre in Finland.

    I enjoyed your essay, reminded me of a headmaster’s conference int he UK in ‘6os. “Rugby’s headmaster said ‘This school prepares a boy for life” Ampleforth’s head said ‘This school prepares a boy for death’
    Both were right!
