About Me

Hey, it’s good to have you here.

My name is Jonathon Hawkins. At 24 years old, I’ve just finished studying a postgraduate degree in philosophy at Durham University, and I’m currently navigating the world as a Freelance Writer.

I live in a small town just outside of Worcester (UK) with my family. In my spare time: I read, play guitar, binge Netflix shows, and drink (lots of ) coffee.

I’m a self-identified Philosopher. And here on Medium, I aim to promote the practical benefits of Philosophy in an accessible way to a mainstream audience. Because of that, you can expect me to explore the sorts of questions we all asked as children:

  • What does it all mean?
  • How can I make the most of my time on Earth?
  • What happens after death?
  • What makes something right or wrong?
  • What makes an argument credible or sound?

Are topics that motivate, and underly every article I write on my profile.

Having recently left academia, you can expect every piece I publish to be well-researched, with solid foundations in reliable evidence from scholars & thinkers from around the world.

Outside of my pursuit of Philosophy, I also explore and write about a variety of other themes, including:

  • Using my academic research and knowledge to write about Psychology.
  • Using and applying the core lessons of Philosophy to the realm of Self-Improvement.
  • Applying and sharing my experiences about Writing, Freelancing and Marketing to help others on this platform improve.

Editorial Duties

During my time on Medium, I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the team for a few publications. These include:
