I'm writer and philosopher Ed Gibney, and this is a site for my work. Like many of my favourite authors*, I write fiction to illustrate and explore the philosophical beliefs I hold.

To anyone familiar with the fields of evolutionary biology, evolutionary psychology, evolutionary linguistics, etc., this term is clear—evolutionary philosophy examines findings from the study of our shared evolutionary history and applies them to the shared eternal questions we ask in philosophy. While there are many thinkers who do this, there are surprisingly few, if any, who use this exact label for their thinking. I hope that changes soon. In the meantime, I see evphil.com as:
