Ravi Chakraborty is a philosopher based in Bangalore. He got a doctoral degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi by writing a thesis on the influence of mathematical notions in the study of literary form. At the Alliance School of Liberal Arts, he teaches courses like logic to computer science, the art of argument and great ideas across ages. His transdisciplinary interests are shaped, in part, by an academic journey that began with studying mechanical engineering at IIT Kanpur and English Literature at the University of Delhi.
He has written on the trope of self-organization in algorithmic culture and on the thought of Mikhail Bakhtin. Having taught courses in ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of technology, he is generally interested in the history of all kinds of ideas besides being driven by the belief that philosophy can enrich public discourse in general.
