Hi there!

This is Ilari Mäkelä, a Finnish philosophy graduate and an independent science writer. I have a BA in Philosophy and Psychology from Oxford and a Master of Philosophy from Peking University (北大). On this site, you can find my scribblings on topics around human nature, moral psychology, and the philosophy of human sciences more generally. I sometimes post about topics of metaphysical curiosity, such as free will and materialism, but my focus is on questions related to a life well-lived.
