  • About

    Kevin Blackwell is a first-year graduate student in Philosophy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In his undergraduate career, Kevin studied at North Carolina State University, where he earned Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Philosophy and graduated as valedictorian. Though he is not yet certain of what path his professional career will follow, Kevin hopes to become a philosopher of physics. Although Kevin finds many areas of philosophy fascinating, he has a special interest in the metaphysics of space and time (or spacetime) and in related issues in the philosophy of physics.

    In his free time, Kevin loves to watch movies and play video games. His favorite directors include Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, the Coen Brothers, and Akira Kurosawa. Kevin enjoys turn-based strategy games, platformers, and rhythm games; his favorite games include Braid and Portal. Over the course of the last year, Kevin has also taken up brewing his own beer – although he is unsure whether he will be able to continue in his new living arrangement.
