Jason Tuckwell

teaches at Western Sydney University. His research interests include Aristotle, Deleuze and the evolution of creative praxis in arts and technology. He is particularly interested in poetics as a practice of deviating structures, in semiotic, cultural and political systems.

He has a forthcoming monograph entitled Creation and the Function of Art: Techné, Poiesis and the problem of Aesthetics (Bloomsbury Philosophy, 2017); the work re-problematises Aristotelian causation in light of contemporary scientific developments to extract a theory of creative emergence, distinct from materialist and evolutionary accounts of becoming.
