Christian Greer holds a B.A. from Boston University's
University's Professor's Program, a M.A. in Hermetic Philosophy
and Related Currents from the University of Amsterdam, a M.Div.
from Harvard Divinity School, and is currently working on a
Ph.D. at the GHF. His academic interests include the interface
between anti-authoritarianism and esotericism, the "Beat
generation", Type-3 & Post-Anarchism, and underground
publishing. His non-academic life is devoted to the free skool
movement (particularly Corvid College), nature (natura
naturans), zine making, and "the ludic".
His Ph.D. research concerns the complexities, disjunctions, and shared assumptions within the formation and development of the Post WWII North American Counter-Culture. Paying particular attention to Brion Gysin, Alan Watts, William Burroughs, and Timothy Leary, his research analyzes how the interplay between esoteric discoursesand radical politics created the conditions for the cultural, religious, and political paradigm shifts of the 1960s and beyond.
