Sound and Fury

Signifying nothing

About me

with one comment

There is, I believe, an “about me” section of my profile or somesuch, but I’ll reproduce in part what I wrote there here. Or maybe I won’t. Perhaps who I was when I wrote that has so little in common with “me-now” that the two pages will have nothing in common. Perhaps they will even be mutually inconsistent or something! What an exciting prospect.

I am a research student at the LSE. I’m interested in philosophy of science, particularly physics, philosophy of probability, philosophy of maths, history of science, history of maths, and miscellaneous other things. I have a website.

My tastes in music, films, TV shows and books are all eclectic to the point of being uncategorisable. Unless “eclectic to the point of being uncategorisable” is a category. In which case the world explodes and Bertrand Russell shakes his head disappointedly.

Sound and Fury is also the name of a music festival, a theatre company and a film about families with deaf children. I am affiliated with none of these things. The name comes from Macbeth, where MacB says:

Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury.
Signifying nothing.
