Peter Sjöstedt-H is an Anglo-Scandinavian philosopher, based in Cornwall, who specialises in the thought of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Alfred North Whitehead. He’s particularly interested in applying the insights of such figures to the experiences unveiled by psychedelics, and the philosophical implications of panpsychism (the belief that mind is in some way a property of all matter). His book Noumenautics contains his essay ‘Neo-Nihilism’, which helped inspire Warren Ellis’ recent take on the Marvel superhero, Karnak. His essay ‘The Great God Pan is Not Dead‘ is an excellent overview of the psychedelic potentials in the notoriously oblique ideas of Alfred North Whitehead.
