Eric D. Berg

Eric Berg is a PhD candidate in the Philosophy Department at the University of Connecticut. He received his B.A from the University of Minnesota and a Masters degree from the University of Chicago, both of which had research focused on philosophy of language, formal logic, and the history of analytic philosophy. Eric’s current research focuses on the intersection between philosophy of technology and the internet, philosophy of language, and social-political philosophy. His PhD project is on the philosophical processes involved with online-radicalization and extremism, with a special focus on how propaganda has adapted to online environments and communicative norms.
Eric also has research interests in Africana philosophy, the philosophy and aesthetics of punk-rock and related sub-cultures, and the history and theory of radical political ideologies – especially anarchism and labor movements.
