Roblin Meeks is an essayist, lapsed professional philosopher, and current higher-education leader. His academic research and publications in philosophy of mind and cognitive science engage questions of self-identification and mis-identification, senses of bodily ownership, mirror self-recognition, and imitation.
His creative nonfiction has appeared in Electric Literature, Smokelong Quarterly, Wigleaf, Human Parts, and elsewhere. He also has a newsletter, "How to Talk to Yourself," a series of creative-nonfiction guides about time, love, work, parenting, and other big stuff.
Born and raised in rural Kansas, Roblin now lives in New York with his wife and daughter, thinking often of his son who has traded coasts for college.
