The Absurd Being WordPress blog is where I post all of my articles. It is an extension of my website of the same name – my online repository for all things philosophy/science related.

My real name is Nathan Hohipuha. I am a New Zealander living and teaching English at a university in South Korea. I mean… I’m not living at the university… although some days it feels like it.

I read and write about philosophy in my free time and occasionally get a video or two posted on my YouTube account.

  1. Hi Nathan, do you intent to study Pascal? Some interpretations makes him a precursor of existentialism, but he cannot be reduced to it. It would be interesting to compare, to see the differences.

    • Hi Benjamin, that’s interesting. I didn’t know that. I don’t have any plans in that direction just at the moment. Honestly, I’m struggling to keep up with what’s on my plate now, but I will definitely keep that in mind. Thanks for letting me know.


  2. This is a superb Blog and Website, especially on Existentialism. I’m delighted to have found you Nathan! Thank you for your insight, plain English explanations and deep knowledge of so many influential thinkers.
