About Nicholas Harrington

I hold a PhD from the University of Sydney. My dissertation, titled "Political Complementarity: Thomas Hobbes, Niels Bohr, and the Problem of Sovereignty," compared the philosophical foundations of Thomas Hobbes and Niels Bohr, with the ultimate purpose of developing a concept of the political based upon Bohr’s theory of Complementarity. The research concerns epistemology; ideational development; the history, philosophy, and sociology of science; and, the rational development of political systems. When I'm not punching keyboard keys I play (a lot of) Magic the Gathering (any other owners of fine, luxury cardboard rectangles, please message me).
