Roger Taylor is the author of ART AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE (revised edition, Kindle), BEYOND ART (revised edition, Kindle), INVISIBLE CELLS AND VANISHING MASSES (Kindle and print version), AM AM US (Kindle and print version Createspace), THERESE & TIAMAT (Kindle and print version Createspace) and BEING CONSCIOUS (Kindle). He is a Marxist philosopher whose subjects include the As If, Rethinking Marxism and the Philosophy of Escape and Virtuality. He has played an influential role in the deconstruction of Art and Culture. For over twenty years he taught philosophy at Sussex University. A variety of his contributions have been published in many books and journals. Roger Taylor is the terrestrial form of the avatar Rumpledsilkskin and INVISIBLE CELLS AND VANISHING MASSES is their most ambitious undertaking to date, made available for May Day 2013. It develops the theory of Virtual Revolution and the theory of Make-Believe. Roger Taylor's book of love poetry to his wife, entitled AM AM US (poems written over 50 years) was published for the start of 2015. His novella called THERESE & TIAMAT about Therese Levasseur and the French Revolution was also published in 2015 (Kindle & Createspace). Everything he writes is both serious and subversive but insanely comic. He has also spent a lifetime making paintings and drawings and planned to spend his final years just adding to this output, which he calls ART IN ANGER, but of late he has been troubled by the myopia of smart, scientific and philosophical accounts of consciousness. So, in old age, along with image-making he confronts 'the hard problem': a new philosophical work on the theory of consciousness, entitled BEING CONSCIOUS became available (Kindle) August 2018.
