My name is Gareth Southwell. I’m a UK-based philosopher, writer and illustrator. For more information on each of these activities, please follow the links below.


I write philosophy books aimed mostly at general readers and students. Go here for more information about my publications (to date and in the works), and sign up to get free ebooks, writing news, and monthly updates on what I’m writing, reading and thinking about.


I’m also a professional illustrator, specialising in book design and illustration. Go here to see examples of my work, or to buy or commission art.


I’ve just published my first novel, a work of sci-fi. Go here for news about this, the interests and ideas that fuel my work, and the occasional free story.
