Patrick Stokes

I’m a philosopher at Deakin University, and have previously held research fellowships in the UK, Denmark and the US.

My areas of research include personal identity, philosophy of death and remembrance, 19th and 20th century European philosophy (especially the work of Søren Kierkegaard), moral psychology and philosophy of religion.
