My name is Tarquin Rees. I am a Phd student in the UK researching Holy Fools and ideas related to paradox in religious/spiritual contexts. 

I will shortly be launching a new blog - paralogical.net - which will be a repository of my academic writing and research findings. I will also attempt to document my spiritual journey framed in the context of academic research and in the light of how one may see one's academic work as a form of initiation. 

My main focus will be on heterodoxy and range from examinations of Greek Cynic thought, through Christian Holy Fools and concepts of 'blame' and madness in Islam and Sufism, through to modern expressions in art and culture with an emphasis on Gurdjieff and Charles Fort. 

A quick note about why I am doing this: it's not about the money. Or rather it is, but not for any superfluous requirements. I have recently finished my MA and am now in the process of self-funding my Phd research. I don't get any grant and am not eligible for a Postgraduate loan so it's down to me to fund my tuition fees as well as everyday living costs. I have got the living expenses down but need to be creative to the tune of 4000 GBP a year for three years for the tuition fees. I am committed to doing it and hopefully this Patreon will be a small part of helping towards this! 

So join me on this journey and perhaps together we can discover the wisdom of Folly!
