Hello, I’m Nathan Allen. Welcome to my page! This serves as an experiment in shortform as well as a little intro to myself.
I am a freelance (sort of, I'm new to this) writer based in Winston-Salem, NC. My writing tends to focus on the interdisciplinary study of the environment — those places where science, philosophy, psychology, history, and other discipline meet. Other than that, I write about philosophy broadly, LGBTQ+ issues, media studies, and culture.
Other interests include vegan cooking, insects, taking care of my two fish (Machiavelli + Midgley), and reading depressing books. To get to know my writing I would start here:
Breathtaking Portraits That Meet Insects at Their Level
Photographer Thorben Danke hopes his intimate and artistic insect portraits can be a catalyst for caring
Stepping into the Empathy Machine
Combining thought experiments with empirical ones to grow that empathy muscle of yours.
