Hi, if you’re here it’s because you’re associated with Reclaim Futures 2020.

In the spirit of the conference, I want to share two writings:

A paper published last year about epistemic and ontic novelty in psychedelic drug studies. Emphasis is on methodology.

An unpublished paper about Mark Fisher’s capitalist realism, Franco Berardi, the algorithmic cancellation of the future, and psychedelic research. It’s got some bits from the above, it’s more political, and it’s not very well edited.

For more about my work, you can also give the homepage of this website a look. –E.S.
