Pirate Philosophy

Chapter 6 provides further examples of what it would mean to act as something like a pirate philosopher in the sense of performatively trialling new ways of composing, publishing and circulating knowledge and research. But it also shows how certain elements of these new ways of being, thinking and doing are already present within the academy (e.g. the publication of work in multiple places, including in draft, pre-print and “grey literature” form, with little attention often being paid to copyright agreements). In doing so, chapter 6 demonstrates how Hall’s argument in Pirate Philosophy regarding the importance of not only what a theorist writes, but also the theory he or she acts out and performs, relates to his own publication with a “brand name” legacy press of a print-on-paper codex book that takes pirate philosophy as one of its subjects.
