Dominic Smith


Dominic is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Dundee, and one of the leading experts in the UK on Philosophy of Technology. Dominic has supervised multiple PhDs to completion across diverse areas including philosophy of technology and media, Deleuze, comparative philosophy, aesthetics, and philosophy of mind, and has contributed to funded research projects including the £1.4 m AHRC project InGAME. Dominic’s latest book is Exceptional Technologies: A Continental Philosophy of Technology, and his current writing project involves thinking about how philosophy of technology can be broadened to speak to issues in philosophy of education, design, and creativity, with a focus on the work of Walter Benjamin. This book draws on impact and outreach work that Smith does as co-lead for the ‘Localising Philosophy’ project at Dundee .
