Dialogues on Disability -Karl Viertel

I’m very late posting about this – apologies for that – but better late than never… The latest installment in Shelley’s series of interviews with disabled philosophers is out now. As always, it raises important and troubling issues. This time, she talks to Karl Viertel, who has chosen to appear in the series under a pseudonym. He talks to Shelley about depression, anxiety, self-identity, the problems with academic ‘pedigree’, and more.

My guest today is Karl Viertel (not his real name). Karl studies Classical German Philosophy and Phenomenology. When he is not nose-deep in a German text, Karl may be found on his yoga mat, bicycle, or in the local coffee shop with a good novel and a slice of cake.
