Miguel prado casanova
Miguel is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy in the Department of Social Sciences at UWE. His main work resides at the intersection of philosophy, sound art, science & technology. He responds to the technoscientific and social conditions around the notions of control, uncertainty and information theory, about how noise brings into crisis the division between activity and passivity, between knowing and feeling. He researches the problems of the metascientific and ideological foundations of diverse projects of prediction and control of uncertainty. From algorithmic surveillance back to cybernetics and how these render noise “informationally heretical”. At UWE, Miguel currently teaches Metaphysics, Philosophy of Science and Nature, Ancient Philosophy, The Death of God and the Meaning of Life, and Film and Philosophy in the BA (Hons) Philosophy programme. He is one of the founders of Thought in Action – a partnership between UWE Philosophy and Politics & IR, Watershed, and MUBI.
