Dr Greg Scorzo
director and editor, Culture on the Offensive
Dr Greg Scorzo is a director and editor of the online magazine Culture on the Offensive. He was a writer for One+One Filmmakers Journal from 2010-14.
Originally from California, he obtained a PhD in meta-ethics, (2011) following an MA in ethics and political philosophy from the University of Nottingham. He taught a wide range of philosophy seminars between 2008-13, including Plato, political philosophy, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind.
He left academia in 2013 to pursue his practice outside of academic constraints. As an original and creative thinker, his aim is to take philosophical thinking outside the conventions of academic philosophy. He has recently developed an innovative course on ‘The Art of Thinking’. He writes post-Socratic Dialogues around universal themes, filtered through a contemporary sensibility.
Greg is currently working on two books, one on Love and Procreation, and the other on political and philosophical interpretations of controversial films. He has also developed an innovative new format for internet based multi-media essays, not tied to either the constraints of academia or online polemical styles. He has extensive knowledge of contemporary music and films. His work focuses on interrogating the impact today’s culture has on one’s thinking and world-views.
